First Fridays: September 4
C’ville Arts Cooperative Gallery 118 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. “Four Seasons,” featuring plein air oil paintings by Meg West. 6-8pm.
En plein air, a French expression meaning open air, is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Artist Meg West prefers the form, the environmental immersion and challenge that comes with it. Living in Virginia, she says she benefits from being able to “breathe, see and experience the view large all around,” and see through eyes that want to recreate and express a sense of beauty. West maintains that it is the act of painting that is important, and says she enjoys the feeling of being connected to her environment and herself as well as her creation.
First Fridays is a monthly art event featuring exhibit openings at many Downtown art galleries and additional exhibition venues. Several spaces offer receptions. Listings are compiled in collaboration with Piedmont Council for the Arts.
Come on out to help celebrate First Fridays with me!
