ARTfactory to Showcase 19 Nova Plein Air Artists in Upcoming Group Exhibit “Water, Water Everywhere” Exhibit dates: May 2 – June 15, 2024 (9419 Battle St, Manassas, VA 20110) Artist Reception: May 4, 6 pm-8 pm (Free & open to the public) RSVP Here: https://www.virginiaartfactory.org/events/water-water-everywhere-artist-reception/ Water, Water Everywhere “Water, Water Everywhere” is a juried group art exhibition featuring 52 plein air paintings created by 19 local artists from the established Nova Plein Air Artists (NPAA) group. Whether it’s in the air, on the ground, or below the earth’s surface, water surrounds us and sustains all life forms on our planet. The paintings in this exhibit examine the vital essence and life force of water through the artists’ eyes. Although the NPAA members often have group “paint-out” sessions in local Northern Virginia areas, such as the Potomac River and Leopold’s Reserve, a few of the paintings transport the viewer to areas the artists experienced outside of Virginia, such as the Outer Banks, Massachusetts, and Maine. About Nova Plein Air Artists Founded in 2016, Nova Plein Air Artists (NPAA) was formed when two artists wished to explore the idea of painting outdoors. Since then, NPAA has evolved into a creative network of local artists committed to painting weekly at organized “paint-outs.” Plein air locations are chosen for their diversity in landscape and local geography, varying from parks to rustic farms, vineyards, and urban settings within the Northern Virginia and Greater Washington, DC area. NPAA’s members, many of whom are also painters of other subjects such as still life, genre, and portraiture, actively participate in plein air competitions and gallery shows throughout the year. Participating Artists Anne Alden, Laura Bollettino, Tracy Burk, Amelia Cheuk, Paula Cottrell, Abigail Davis Muncy, Rachel Garcia Palmer, Layla Gray, Maureen Guillot, Pat Heineman, Amy Mann, Anne Meagher-Cook, Theresa Miller, Marilyn Miyamoto, Christine Raymond, Robin Rosner, Margaret Stewart, Robert Thoren, Vicky Zhou Contact ARTfactory, Gallery Director: Jordan Exum | jexum@VirginiaARTfactory.org 9419 Battle St, Manassas, VA 20110 703-330-2787 Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Saturday (10 am-5 pm), Sunday (12-5 pm) VirginiaARTfactory.org
