Plein Air Paintings at IDEA Gallery

Idea Gallery’s Exhibit 3 features new plein-air paintings by Minnesota-based oil painter Jeff Boutin. Boutin uses a variety of palette knives to create richly-colored landscapes, and his body of work reflects his visits to Door County over the years, including tranquil shoreline scenes and compositions of Cave Point.

“There is inspiration no matter where you are on the peninsula,” Boutin said. 

In addition to being an accomplished painter, Boutin is a sought-after teacher. Every season, Idea Gallery hosts beginner to advanced workshops on palette knife painting, and for the first time this off-season, Boutin will be teaching a workshop on painting winter birch scenes. 

Idea Gallery is located at 6551 County Road T, Egg Harbor.
