Edgewater’s Plein Air 2023 event shifts location this year, to picturesque Warren Vermont. Together with The Pitcher Inn and Warren Store, we will host the three day workshop and two day painting event Tuesday June 20rd through Saturday June 24th.  

Acclaimed plein air painter and teacher, Tracy Everly will open the event by offering a  workshop taking place on the three days leading up to the plein air event. Painters of all levels will benefit from this fun and informative class.

Workshop Description:
This workshop offers a guided learning opportunity to immerse yourself in a multi-day experience painting outdoors with Tracy. We will paint together in and around picturesque Warren, Vermont.   

We’ll focus on simplifying the majesty of nature through composition, value control, and color. Topics will include choosing a painting site, exploring compositions, using value to create structure, and creating color harmony, among others. We will also discuss equally-important aspects of painting such as active looking, focus, mindset, and expectations.

Our days will include:
-Live painting demos
-Discussion
-Ample time to paint
-Individual guidance and feedback
-Connection with like-minded artists

Every day spent painting outside is an opportunity to enjoy the moment and grow as a painter.

GET TO KNOW TRACY EVERLY!
Artist Tracy Everly (b. Philadelphia 1968) uses oil paint to explore the fleeting experience of being human. She observes and paints and distills different moments into a simplified form that is ultimately meant to capture the remains or accumulation of an experience as it slips away. 

Everly’s skill as a painter was developed through study with individual artists and through classes at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. She has won numerous awards for her work including an Award of Distinction from the American Impressionist Society, and two Bucks County Resident Artist Awards from the Bucks County Plein Air Festival. Her work has been included in both regional and national exhibitions.

Everly teaches online and also teaches in-person workshops across the U.S. She has been represented by Edgewater Gallery since 2022.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience, though some plein air experience is helpful.

Class fee: $540

PLEIN AIR PAINT OUT

Friday June 23rd – 24th, 2023
9:00 AM – 2:30 PM
The Pitcher Inn & Warren Store
& the village of Warren, VT

Our 4th annual plein air event travels east over the Green Mountains to Warren Vermont, one of Vermont’s quintessential villages. Its location between two ranges of the Green Mountains and within the Green Mountain National Forest, provides a wealth of subject matter for our 8 plein air painters and a chance for visitors to enjoy the beauty of the Mad River Valley and our artists’ interpretation of it.

Paintings done “en plein air” possess an exciting sense of immediacy and energy as artists set up canvases, palettes and brushes outdoors, facing the challenge of making on the spot decisions in composition, color, and portrayal of light and shadow. 

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS:
Susan Abbott
Scott Addis
Joe Bolger

Tracy Everly
Larry Horowitz
Rory Jackson
Julia Purinton
Rachel Wilcox

The artists will take advantage of morning light and moderate temperatures, starting their days by 9:00 AM. Edgewater Gallery staff will be available at both The Warren Store and The Pitcher Inn to provide maps of the area, and artist information. Plan your mid day break by pre-ordering a bag lunch in the morning at The Warren Store’s Deli Counter. Explore the village while seeking out the painters and having the rare opportunity to learn first hand about their process while watching them work.
