Drawing Attention: En Plein Air with Gary Blundell and Victoria Ward

Friday, July 26, 2019 - 9:30am to 3:30pm

Friday, July 26th, 9:30-3:30
On location at the Mnjikaning Fish Weirs and Scout Valley
 
A plein air artwork is one that was made outside, on location, from real life.  En plein air literally means “in the open air.”  The concept is simple: you work from life to capture the immediate light and color. This often means painting quickly, because the light changes drastically within two hours. Join Gary Blundell and Victoria Ward of Project Voyager, on this full-day En Plein Air experience. As a group you'll enjoy the great outdoors, feed off each other's enthusiasm for plein air painting and learn a few techniques along the way.
 
At two specially chosen locations, Gary and Victoria will draw attention to both natural beauty and the impact of industry on the landscape. Each location uniquely captures the push and pull between human encroachment on wildlife and the destructive forces of the natural world.
 
Box Lunch Included. We can accommodate vegetarian and gluten free. Please specify if either are required.
 
Artist Bio
Gary and Victoria live in the boreal forest of Ontario near Algonquin Park in a log cabin. They have been exhibiting and producing work for over twenty years and have shown both nationally and internationally. Primarily, they are painters but their work reflects their earlier careers. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Gary was a geological scientist and noted environmental researcher in Ottawa and Toronto and Victoria a Toronto based playwright.
