Alabama Plein Air Artists

Alabama Plein Air Artists Group

This art exhibition consists of 34 paintings by 17 members of the Alabama Plein Air Artists. Each work was painted on location at Aldridge Gardens between 2021-2022.

En plein air, or "plein air painting," is the act of painting outdoors. Alabama Plein Air Artists are from all over the state and beyond. For over twenty years, this group of artists has met monthly to paint the beauty of Alabama en plein air. We are watercolorists, oil painters, sketchers, and more. The group has all skill levels from beginner to professional, all ages from 18 to seventies.   

Our mission is to capture the sights and scenic locales of the beautiful state of Alabama and beyond. Our membership is comprised of artists from Alabama and surrounding states, but we welcome anyone who would like to paint with us and attend our monthly paint outs.
