GARDEN TOUR, PLEIN AIR PAINTINGS

June 2- 28, 2015
2nd Friday ArtAbout Reception: June 12, 6-9 PM

The Pence Gallery’s 24th Annual Garden Tour on May 3rd was centered in the lovely gardens of West Davis, and had a special focus on low-water landscaping. Over four hundred people enjoyed this tour of eight private gardens and two public parks. The Garden Tour celebrates the artistry of local landscape architects and garden owners, and is organized to raise funds to support the Pence’s exhibit and education programs.

For the 9th year, artists painted in the gardens as an essential part of the Garden Tour. This year Joanne Andresen, Debbie Gualco, Leslie duPratt, Nancy LaBerge Muren, Philippe Gandiol, Patris, Deborah Hill, Natalie Mackenzie, Alice Peterson, and Sally Borges sketched, painted, and fought the wind during our Tour. In addition, weaver Natalie Mackenzie demonstrated the technique of spinning yarn. Each artist captured a unique view of the garden in his or her preferred medium, be it watercolor, acrylic, or oil paint. Plein Air painting, which requires one to work directly from nature, is a challenging task, given the changing conditions of light and weather. In addition, each artist had to work quickly, while talking to Tour participants. The Pence would like to thank all of the talented artists who contributed to our event by sharing their work with others.

Thank you for supporting these artists and the Pence, and enjoy the show!
