Edgewater Gallery at the Falls – One Mill St, Middlebury


Join us for Plein Air 2021, our second annual celebration of plein air painting. This year eight of Edgewater’s established painters will bring brushes and paints, canvases and palettes out of their studios, and into the great outdoors to immerse themselves in the landscape and create paintings that reflect the immediacy of each artist’s emotional response to and interpretation of, their chosen composition. The spontaneity and improvisation that are part of painting en plein air add a unique quality to the finished piece. Visitors will witness this exciting process as they explore the picturesque town of Middlebury, discovering artists, watching them work, engaging them in conversation, and having the opportunity to purchase new paintings off the easel.





Thursday August 19th 5:00PM-6:30PM – Artist talk with Timothy Horn

Tim Horn began his artistic career as a graphic designer but soon realized that his real interest lay in fine art painting. Horn lives in Northern California where he gravitates to painting scenes of rural life that include structures and old cars and explore the play of light and shadow on these elements. His paintings are imbued with a sense of nostalgia and he strives to tell his story and convey personal observations in each composition.
Tim Horn’s work is held in collections and galleries nationally, and he has won numerous awards. He is an experienced teacher and holds workshops throughout the US and abroad.

Horn will discuss his process from Plein Air to studio work and his presentation will include a slideshow. Refreshments will be served.
This event is free and open to the public but we ask that you register by calling 802-458-0098 or by emailing us at [email protected] so that we are aware of the number of attendees and arrange seating for the event.
