Plein Air Painting in Killarney Park
March 1-31, 2018

Opening Reception: March 3, 1:00-4:00pm

Join us for an opening reception that will demonstrate the beauty and raw stillness of Killarney Park through the way Christy captures each lasting moment in paint.

Impressionistic artist Christy A. Smith, Friends of Killarney Park (FOKP), and Emerging Artist Lydia Gaudreau presents in partnership, the FOKP Artist in Residence Program; Plein Air Painting in Killarney Park. The exhibit will run from March 1-31.

The Artist in Residence (A.I.R.) program was started in 2010 as an initiative to connect visitors to nature through art by providing professional instruction. Since then, they have had on average four weeks of A.I.R. programming through the summer months and have had 12 Artists on Residence. Every year, roughly 400 people partake in the program.

In 2017, Lydia was the first emerging artist trained by Christy via the A.I.R. FOKP program. Together they will be showcasing their individuality in plein air painting connecting art and nature together as one.

*All receptions are free to attend so don’t be shy to drop by and spend the afternoon with us!
