The Grant County Art Guild is holding a Plein Air Art show from Oct 1-31. What is Plein Air? En plein air is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors with the subject in front of the artist. The fascinating subject of this Plein Air show is the town of Silver City. Included are paintings of prominent historic architecture, small businesses, tucked-away places and private houses. Preview the show in the GCAG's large display windows, then come inside the gallery to enjoy the rest. The show will run Oct 1-31, with a “meet the artists” reception Oct 9 from 4-7, during the SCAA Weekend at the Galleries. The Grant County Art Guild is located at 316 N Bullard Street, Silver City. Oct hours are 10-5 every day. For more information, and to get a sneak peek at some of the paintings, see gcag.org.
