Approaching Storm
9th Annual Paint Out Exhibition
July 20, 2011 – August 31, 2011

Beginning July 15th, Twenty five established artists came to Missoula and the surrounding area to paint en plein air, French for "in the open air. They took on the challenge of working in changing elements: heat, shifting light, moving subjects and an intense summer hail storm, and now the results are up for viewing!

Plein air artists follow in the footsteps of the French Impressionists from the late 1800's and the American artists from the coast and southwest who followed the railroads west, painting scenes that informed the nation of Western grandeur in the 1900's.

The Dana Gallery is proud to continue the tradition of plein air work through holding this annual event. The plein air work, as well as studio work from each artist, will hang in the gallery from July 20th-August 31st.

View the entire exhibition.
