LORDS VALLEY - “Painting The Landscape,” a group art show and sale by local plein air artists is scheduled from Oct. 2 to 30 at Davis R. Chant Realtors, Lords Valley office/gallery. The galley is located on route 739 just south of I-84 exit 34 and open seven days, 9 to 5. Meet the artists at a reception, Friday, Oct. 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. This is a must see show of original art work in many different mediums and styles, the culmination of the summer long “Come Paint With Me,” program in which artists meet weekly at selected sites to study and record the effects of daylight on the landscape as well as to commune with nature. The program, begun nine years ago by artist Joan Polishook of Hemlock Farms is free to artists from beginner to experienced professionals. The participants come from all over the tri state area to share their expertise and to draw, paint and enjoy the hands on experience of creating in the outdoors.
