This past summer, artist Tony Henriques transported his paints and easel to several spots including the Quequechan River Rail Trail to paint en plein air, the French expression meaning in the open air. What he found in addition to enjoying the natural light, color and movement of his surroundings was the interest and conversation of the people passing by. Tony used this exercise in painting outdoors as a learning tool to discuss true light, colors and the essence of the landscape with his appreciative outdoors audience.
Plein Air celebrates the beautiful paintings created, the processes learned and a shared love of the scenery especially along the Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail in Fall River on the northern shore of South Watuppa Pond.
This exhibition is supported in part by the Fall River Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
