“Sunny Day Along the River, Aude, France,” oil, by Julie Houck.

Contributing to the exhibit are selected members of two groups – the International Plein Air Painters and Landscape Artists International. Among the countries represented are Brazil, the Czech Republic and Canada.

The featured host artist of “Far and Near Horizons” is plein air painter Aaron Holland of Sturgeon Bay. Holland is a veteran painting instructor at the Peninsula Art School.

The Peninsula Art School is co-hosting the exhibit with the Link Gallery. According to Peninsula Art School Community Relations Director, Cinnamon Rossman, the event offers visitors a first-look into what they can expect from the on-site works completed during the plein air festival in Door County.

“The resurgence in public enthusiasm for landscape painting –and plein air works in particular – has created a demand for festivals and exhibitions like ‘Far and Near Horizons,’” she says. “The Peninsula Art School is honored to host artists of this high caliber in both events.”
