Plein Air for Camphill.

Last night I checked out the exhibition "Plein Air for Camphill" at Rosenfeld Gallery. The exhibition is a benefit for Camphill Special School, a school for youth with developmental and intellectual disabilities in Glenmoore, PA; a portion of proceeds from sale of works benefits Camphill's education and care for children with special needs. Cool, huh? The majority of work at the exhibit was created on-site at a day-long plein air art-making event this past August at the school. There were over 50 artists represented, so there was a lot of great work (and a ton of people at the opening!) – here's but a tiny sample:
Apple Tree Three, 11" x 14", oil on panel, by Stephanie Lieberman

Fairview Road, 15” x 16.5”, oil on panel, by David Shevlino

Shed, Woods and View, 14" x 18", oil on linen, by Alexandra Tyng
