Auckland Plein Air Artists Inaugural Group Exhibition

Sunday 11 September 2022 - Friday 30 September 2022

Opening celebration: 4pm Sunday 11th September, Becroft Gallery

Artist talk: 11am, Saturday 17th September, Becroft Gallery


The Auckland Plein Air group of artists was originally set up by Russell Hollings and a few of his artist friends. The group is made up of both professional and student artists, meeting up once a month to paint at various locations around the Auckland area. The term plein air is a French term, which simply means “in the open air”, and was first used by the French impressionist movement, who preferred to paint in the open air to capture the true light, colour and atmosphere, something that is not achievable from photographs in a studio. This movement has now taken off around the world, and is recognised as one of the fastest growing movements in the art world.

Included in this exhibition are 10 artists from the group, with each artist exhibiting four of their most recent works. The exhibition is the group’s first, and it is intended that we will be making it an annual event to be held here at the wonderful Lake House Arts
