As "Scene" at the Farmers Market
A 'Plein Air' Group Show
Reception: Saturday, November 5, 2011, 2-4 p.m.
Music by pianists Siyuan Ma, Fangru Jiang and Amanda Li

For the second year in a row the Chelmsford Art Society has encouraged its members and friends to come out to the weekly Farmers Market on the town common and take advantage of natural light to paint all the colorful scenes at Chelmsford Farmers Markets. Our November exhibit will show some of the results from these 'Plein Air' afternoons.

Artists came to the market at various times and painted plein air, some took photos and worked in their studios. Some photographers spent a few afternoons there. On display at this exhibit will be various techniques: watercolor, oil, acrylic, color pencil, digitally enhanced photos, a whole variety of techniques.....

"We enjoyed talking with all the people who came by. They had a lot of questions about painting." -Rita Thompson, CAS
