Plein Air Artists—In the Open Air

15 Jul 2021 - 15 Aug 2021
The Plein Air Artists are a group of enthusiastic artists who meet every Saturday afternoon at locations within Melbourne and its environs, to gain focus, relaxation, and self-expression through painting and drawing at these sites. They have been motivated by the immense social and personal benefits from sharing their passion with each other.

The group was started up 29 years ago primarily by some students of John Yule, deceased, who had a distinguished career as an artist and teacher. It has endured even though some of its members are deceased or no longer paint.

The six artists—Beverly Braddy, Ken Jungwirth, Evelyn Yee, Sue Kelly, Pilar de la Torre and Nathan Moshinsky—that are represented in the exhibition are VAS members who have various degrees of experience.
