Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay (PAPCB) To Hang Benefit Exhibit
at Church Alley Gallery in November
The exhibit, The Many Faces of Evergreen, is the first group show for The Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay (PAPCB). A benefit for Evergreen, A Center for Balanced Living, and the Mid-Shore Community Mediation Center, all works were painted exclusively on the Evergreen campus.
The exhibit opens with a reception on First Friday, November 7, at Church Alley Gallery, from 5-7:30 pm, and continues through November 29, 2014. The public is invited to attend. Fifty percent of sales proceeds will be donated by the artists.
Church Alley Gallery is located at 32-34 S. Washington Street, Easton, MD.
On November 8, PAPCB will also have a Paint-Out Day at Evergreen. The public is invited to enjoy the Evergreen grounds and observe the plein air painters between 10 am – 3 pm (Evergreen is located at 770 Port Street, Easton MD).
The Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay (PAPCB) started in April 2014 when Jackie Pfaff-Pratt, Elaine Shortall, Kate Quinn and Diane DuBois Mullaly began painting together on Tuesdays.
This group is the “daughter” of the long established Plein Air Painters of the Eastern Shore (PAPES), which was founded in 2004 by Anne Hock and the late Liz Donovan. PAPES still exists but no longer schedules organized paint outs. PAPCB now has over 30 members and organizes a plein air paint out every Tuesday.
