Outdoor Painting in Jeffersonville [SIV525] 

3/16/18: For more than a century, plein air artists have been gathering in Jeffersonville to paint the natural landscape. Artists like Aldro Hibbard, Alden Bryan and Emile Gruppe braved the outdoor elements to capture the unique rural vistas during every season but summer.

This winter's informal two week gathering of artists is hosted by Visions of Vermont and Bryan Memorial Gallery. The group consists of about 40 painters, some of them visiting all the way from Russia. Local artists include Eric Tobin, Karen Winslow and Peter Miller and there are also regular guests like T.M. Nicholas and Stapleton Kearns. They travel around the area chasing the light, trying to capture the historic barns and majestic landscapes before they disappear.

Eva spent a chilly Friday afternoon watching the artists paint on Main Street in Jeffersonville and at the covered bridge in Waterville and asked - sometimes with the help of a translator - what draws them to this area.

You can see some of the finished works from this gathering at the Bryan Memorial Gallery through April 1st and from May 2 - June 24.

Music: Kevin MacLeod, "Dewdrop Fantasy"
