Shadows-on-the-Teche: Plein Air presents a survey of contemporary Plein Air painting from around the nation. En Plein Air, French for the act of painting outdoors, is a method of painting brought to the forefront of artistic technique in the mid-nineteenth century by the likes of the Hudson River School, and the Impressionists.
This exhibition is presented in celebration of the Shadows-on-the-Teche Plein Air Competition, which takes place annually in New Iberia. This competition draws painters from around the United States, and showcases the culture and artistic community of Acadiana.
