Carrying forward the tradition of painting from life

 

Andy EvansenThe Plein-Air Painters of America is a small group of accomplished professionals who are dedicated to painting from life and to using field studies as the inspiration for studio works. Since organizing in 1986 on Catalina Island, PAPA put plein-air "paintouts" on the national stage, attracting a global audience of art collectors and spawning seedling shows that have bloomed across the country.
