In the Moment: Arlene Braithwaite 

Artist Reception: March 22, 7-9pm    

Exhibit: March 23 – April 26, 2018

Artist Arlene Braithwaite is a pastel artist.  Her new exhibit, “In the Moment: The Awareness of Plein Air," features a series of landscapes the artist created outdoors. Braithwaite taught art for many years at SUU until her recent retirement.  She recently described the unique aspects of painting plein air when she said, "During set up, the artist checks clouds, sun position, temperature, wind, distractions. Painting shifts focus to composition and shadow placement. Shapes are studied, colors analyzed and edges scrutinized. When successful, the wordless, mental engagement between subject and artist creates an informed interpretation of the moment.”
