Upcoming Exhibitions


2 – 30 September 2019


An Exhibition of plein air paintings, direct from the field

En plein air is a French expression meaning “in the open air” and refers to the act of painting outdoors.  These paintings have all been done on location, with the artist’s subject in full view, and without any photographic reference.  They are from the easel, direct to the gallery.

Exhibition Opening & A Judges Perspective: Sunday 8 September at 3.30 pm. Special guest is Plein Air Down Under Judge Gillian Peebles, who will be talking about what she looks for when judging a plein air competition. Great insight ahead of painting at Plein Air Down Under!

Venue: Vivid Gallery Mandurah
2/3 Smart Street Mall
