4th Annual Plein Air Richmond 2016 June 19-26 Loryn Brazier of Brazier Gallery started Plein Air Richmond in 2012. Proceeds from 2016 sales benefit the Richmond SPCA, an independent non-profit organization bringing animals into the lives of humans since 1891.

Typically, participating Plein Air artists paint in oil and watercolor, capturing the essence of Richmond’s scenic locations with the usual subject unpredictability and finesse plein artists are known for. The event culminates with a series of events during the last weekend starting with a ticketed preview party Friday, June 24 from 5-8pm, at Brazier Gallery, 1616 West Main Street. Tickets cost $75

1. Anne Blair Brown, Out and About, oil, 16” x 12”
Plein Air Truest Form Plein Air Painting derives from the French equivalent meaning “open (in full) air.” Capturing a moment in time, in all its natural perfections and imperfections is a calling of true depiction. The truest form of capture can best be assertained by plein air artists who seek to bring the world into art by bringing the art process into the world. Light, color, composition, can all be pre-planned but in plein air the artist loses complete control of the elements and depicts our surroundings as our surroundings dictate. The wonderful array of possible subjects create an endless amount of inspiration that capture, or discover an oft-depicted subject in just the right composition or setting. To celebrate the artists (and galleries who represent them) who “go out” and find their subjects in plein air we offer a small taste of the artists themselves and their creative process.
2. Bethanne Cople, Breathless with Adoration; the Broad Sun, 12” x 18”
1. Anna Blair Brown, artist. www.anneblairbrown.com. Gallery - Brazier Gallery. 1616 W Main St, Richmond, VA. 804.358.2771. www.braziergallery.com. Anne Blair Brown was born in Rhode Island and is currently based in Nashville, Tennessee. Her work centers on both rural and urban landscapes, people, and interior spaces. Brown tries to paint en plein air whenever possible. In her words, “Painting on location creates an intimacy with the subject that informs my studio work. It heightens my sense of spontaneity, and that energy is translated to the canvas.” Anne Blair Brown’s oil painting “Out and About” is an excellent example of the loose, painterly brush strokes desired in plein air paintings. Plein Air paintings of-

ten depict landscapes but “Out and About” is unique because it captures the mood of a fun night on the town outside the Tobacco Company, one of Richmond’s classier bars. Unfortunately, Brown is unable to join us for Plein Air Richmond this year, but her paintings can still be found at Brazier Gallery. Loryn Brazier founded Brazier Gallery in Richmond, Virginia, showcasing contemporary realism and impressionism. 2. Bethanne Cople, artist. www.bethannekinsellacople.com. Gallery - Huff Harrington Fine Art. 4240 Rickenbacker Drive, Atlanta, GA. 404.257.0511. www.huffharrington.com. The American landscape – endless skies, calming waters, and the varied shores of the East and West coasts are Cople’s passion and she travels far and wide to cap-
ture her subjects. “I love painting the landscape en plein air. In the outdoors, exposed to the sun, wind and rain, you can incorporate not only what you see, but also the sounds and the smells of the landscape. All of this lets me convey the sense of wonder I feel at the subject”, says Cople. Undeterred by nature’s extremes, Cople has painted in blizzards in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah; on the precarious cliffs of Monhegan Island, Maine; in howling gales off the California coast; and, of course, in both summer and winter in her beloved Eastern Shore of Maryland and Potomac River in Virginia. She paints with expressive brushwork, a finely honed sense of color and powerful composition. Bethanne has added Provence to her list of favorite spots to paint en plein air as she is getting set to lead another group through the laven-
15 der this June 19-25. Please go to http:// huffharrington.com/products/painting-inprovence, for more information. Cople received a classical Fine Art education at The George Washington University with an emphasis on drawing and composition. From the time Bethanne began painting professionally and entering competitions, she has been earning recognition for her work. Most recently, she received an Honorable Mention at the American Impressionist Society Annual National 2015 exhibit. 3. Karen Lee Crenshaw, artist. 708 Ireland Court Jacksonville, NC 28546. 910.353.8684. 910.228.7802. www.karenleecrenshaw.com. Inspired by the beautiful waterways of the coast, Karen Lee Crenshaw re-discovered a love of plein air painting in 2007. “A sense of place. That is the goal of my landscape paintings, for the viewer to ‘see’ what I am seeing and to feel that is a place they have been or would like to visit. Plein air painting inspires me to capture the quality of the light that sets off that connection.” She has also painted from photographs that were taken before Hurricanes Bertha and Fran, records of a “vanishing landscape,” which contain scenes that may be changing as development encroaches. “It is a great source of enjoyment for me to hear people come into my studio and recognize, with nostalgia, where the paintings were made.” Karen Lee Crenshaw has lived in Jacksonville for the last sixteen years where she maintains Crenshaw Art Studio in her home in Jacksonville, NC and at ArtExposure, located in Hampstead, NC. (www.artexposure50.com). In addition to painting award-winning landscapes Karen accepts commissioned portraits. Her work is also available at Fine Art at Baxter’s, New Bern, (www.fineartatbaxters. com).

4. Kim Hall, artist. www.kimhallstudio.com. 804.514.7941. “Painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one’s sensations” — Paul Cezanne Virginia painter Kim Hall travels far and wide trying to capture the light and essence of our quickly disappearing landscape. She enjoys the challenge of painting en plein air, and dealing with everything mother nature can throw your way. There is no better way to capture a scene or a moment in time than to be there in that moment. “Painting from life has taught me how to see as a painter.” For information on galleries and upcoming shows and events www.kimhallstudio.com 4. Linda Hollett-Bazouzi, artist. www.lindahollett.net Linda Hollett-Bazouzi is a landscape painter of local, regional, and international scenes. Armed with a paint knife, she travels with her paints around the world and down the street. She does not consider
her plein air works studies, but rather finished works that stand on their own, that may or may not inform later studio pieces. Her style demands an alla prima approach, not only because of changing light, but because her knife work lays down paint quite differently from a brush. She paints quickly, to capture THAT cloud, THAT tree, THAT moment in a time that will never be again. The first two weeks in April she travelled to The Netherlands, where she painted for nine days in Katwijk aan Zee and Noordwijkerhout. For three of those days she was fighting the wind, the rain, and the cold to take a workshop with Dutch plein air painter Roos Schuring. Traveling alone gives her the freedom to work at a pace different from many travelers. This trip resulted in 14 paintings in seven days. Hollett-Bazouzi is currently lead artist for the Virginia Plein Air Painters, based around Richmond, Virginia. More information on her paintings, workshops, and gallery representation can be found at www.lindahollett.net.

Photography Exposing the shutter Photography is one of the most interconnected mediums of art we have today. The proximity individuals, both enthusiasts and professionals have to the art form creates enthusiasm for capturing the “right shot”. Although we all have experienced the thrill of photography at some point, the art form of photography is a learned skill, embodying the intimatcy photographers have with their subject matter and how they choose to share their connection with the viewer. Light, composition, exposure, development, all play a part in how photographers convey their emotions on print and paper. What follows is a small group of photograpahers and galleries who discuss their love of photography and how they choose to express the right moment with the “right shot”.
1. Mike Basher, photographer. www.bashergallery.com. Gallery - Mike Basher Photography. 410 Front St, Beaufort, NC. Mike Basher captures his sublime photographs in a way that might be thought of as non-traditional these days… with large sheets of black and white film. Working with what many consider an antique box camera, his distinct, delicately crafted compositions offer a unique view into any scene. Conveying a tranquil simplicity, and often even a bit of surrealism, Mike’s unique style of fine art black and white photography has quickly become a special interest of private collectors with exquisite taste. His 20-year career as a photographer has taken Mike all over the globe, photographing campaigns for brands like Under Armour, Reebok, and The North Face, working with sports greats such as Michael Phelps, Jordan Spieth, and Andy Murray.
23 Calling Beaufort, North Carolina home, Mike’s work hangs at his intimate waterfront gallery, overlooking wild horses, majestic sailboats and the ever-beautiful Beaufort Harbor. 2. Susan Jones, artist. www.skjonesart.com.com. Gallery - Tipping Paint Gallery. 311 West Martin St., Raleigh, NC. www.tippingpaintgallery.com. Susan Jones was drawn to old hand colored photographs so she decided to study techniques and media to create a contemporary version. Photographs for handcoloring are printed with an eye to where the color will be applied while maintaining good contrast in the black and white areas. Using Photoshop allows her to blend layers and make corrections easily. The photographs are printed to resemble the under-painting technique, grisaille, used by The Old Masters. Glazing is created by applying color in thin, transparent layers of colored pencil. Most of Susan’s current work is created using 5 pencils; cyan, yellow, magenta, indigo and white, giving the work a special depth. Susan’s choice of subject matter reflects her training as an illustrator and documentarian; she loves to photograph the world around her and hopes to share with the viewer a different way of seeing. 3. Annell L Metsker, M. Photog., Cr., PPA Certified, F. Ph. www.annell.com. firstname.lastname@example.org. Charlotte Studio 704. 847.8281. Cashiers Studio 828.743.5784. Cell 704.996.0559. Annell combines photography with digital painting and oils to create images that evoke the soul of her subjects and portray mood and emotion. Whether she is creating a portrait, landscape, or figurative work of art she uses the beauty and mystery of light and shadow and the rhythm of motion to
captivate the viewer. She works intuitively to reveal beauty and authenticity. She finds her creative muse in her art studio on Lake Glenville, near Cashiers and Highlands, NC where the peacefulness and energy of the mountains inspire her paintings. She has a successful portrait studio in Charlotte, NC, specializing in heirloom portraits of children, families, and women. Annell has received many state, regional, and national awards from Professional Photographers of America, Kodak, Fuji, Professional Photographers of North Carolina, and Burrell Imaging. She earned the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsmen Degrees from PPA and was twice named Photographer of the Year by PPNC. Her art has been exhibited and published across the US and Canada and it hangs in many private collec-

10 Interesting Facts About Water 311 Gallery
Leonardo da Vinci described water as ‘the vehicle of nature’; water is to the world as blood is to the body. Some facts you’ll know and some, maybe not! 1. Water is a universal solvent. 2. 8 forms of water: liquid, ice, gas, steam, snow, fog, dew, and clouds. 3. 0 calories, 0 nutrients = vital to all forms of life. 4. Water has been part of the universe its entire existence. 5. Water is a byproduct of star formation. 6. Water, in some form, has been detected on all our planets and the sun. 7. The gram is defined by water. 8. Kelvin temperature scale is defined by water. 9. Water is used in most religions as a purifier. 10. Water covers 71% of the earth’s surface; only 2.5% is fresh water. Water has been a worldwide theme in the arts since ancient times. The belief that all life comes from water is shared across time and cultures; symbolizing birth and rebirth through the female divinities, violence and death with the male divinities. Much
Art in the 21st Century has moved from the sacred to political awareness. Water is a mirror, reflecting our world and giving a sense of the future; symbolic of salvation and destruction, reminding us that water is relevant and critical to survival everywhere on earth. Water is the giver of life and it needs to be protected. Bob Rankin is sharing his love of water with us in his current exhibition, Water Treatment. From the geometry of waves to shapes of the sound, we’ll be reminded of the life force of water; its ability to sooth, its beauty, and its power. 1. Bob Rankin, A Sound Scape 2.

Ford Smith in Roswell For more than a dozen years, world-class and critically-acclaimed landscape artist, Ford Smith, continues to be both an innovator and institution for the Atlanta art scene. Represented by fine art galleries from New York to Beijing, this artist-owned namesake gallery in Ford’s hometown of Roswell, Georgia features new original paintings directly from his studio, alongside premier hand-painted editions. Ford lives and paints in his home studio located just a few miles away. The gallery is operated by Ford’s wife, Cristi, a veteran retail marketing professional who also writes for major art industry publications. Ford Smith is widely recognized for reinventing the modern landscape. His sense of nature is not a Romantic’s wild and angry universe. To the contrary, his paintings reflect a palpable optimism and vibrant confidence. The easy precision, subtlety and repose of his paintings are likely derived from an Asian aesthetic learned from an elderly Japanese master in Ford’s early years while his military family was stationed overseas. Fantastical trees, light, and fractured reflections are classic Ford Smith, however, his talent and
“This is our 4th Ford Smith Gallery. We love having this stage for Ford’s work--particularly in our hometown,” Cristi says, “With more than 1500 square feet of exhibit space, we can showcase the breadth of his talent, and Ford feels the freedom to explore artistically. He likes to try different techniques and discover new ways of interpreting nature.” Ford Smith Fine Art visitors receive a personal, in-depth experience of Ford’s artistic genius and feel the untethered nature of the art that comes with having this dedicated exhibit. 1.
