Paint from 8 am – 4 pm
Exhibition in the SC Lounge: August 24-October 7, 2019
Reception: Saturday, August 24, 5-8 pm | Free and open to the public
In 2017 the Scarab Club hosted IN THE AIR–its first plein air exhibition. More than 50 artists signed up to accept the challenge to paint or draw an original work of art between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm. When the artists returned their work, it was installed in the lounge–wet–and we all celebrated at the reception! It was a great community effort, and wonderful to see easels set up throughout the city with artists painting landscapes and cityscapes. Last year we had a great response again, and we’ve decide to make it an annual event.
The Scarab Club invites artists to participate in its 2019 IN THE AIR exhibition. The exhibition will showcase work which has been painted between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm on Saturday, August 24th. There is no entry fee for this exhibition.
