Painted “plein air”
creating works of art outdoors in the fresh air
30 artists and other creatives gathered to sketch, paint, write, take photographs and soak up the atmosphere of NOTO.
“When you’re working with a group of people you never know who gets what part of the necessary information,” Barbara Waterman-Peters exhibit director said. “But its been fun in the long run because I have artists of all skill levels who wanted to participate so there was no jurying, it was all open, and just a response to NOTO.”
The exhibit debuted at the October First Friday Art Walk, and will continue through mid-November. Waterman-Peters said she will carefully document each poem, painting and picture presented and after the exhibit closes will compile a book to preserve the exhibition.
“I felt that all of these people — because of their hard work, and my hard work — that it would be fitting to put something together,” she said.
