OUR MISSION is to redefine the tradition of plein air painting within a modern society. Our events aim to encourage artists to develop original techniques and embrace new challenges in open air work. We exhibit fresh, vibrant pieces of fine art to inspire creativity and celebrate plein air in the modern world.
PLEIN AIR c o n t e m p o r a r y is situated in a creative heart of Chelsea and shares its space with an established and widely acclaimed framing business, Chelsea framers. As an ‘art’ event organisation we stage and conduct plein air projects and competitions for local and international artists, designed to advance and enhance their skills and reputations.
To inspire them we organise special outdoor classes such as painting at dawn, drawing in graphite tones, in diversity of plein air locations. The finished works of art can then be exhibited at fortnightly shows at our own gallery.
As art dealers we have built up an extensive client list. Our close relationships with Chelsea Framers enable us to offer our artists and clients a comprehensive service from canvas to framed work of art.We plan to extend our range of artists in 2015.In the process we will make available creative workshops and organise plein air outings, under suitable supervision. Our Aim is to establish a creative art centre in the heart of Chelsea serving artists and clients alike.
We will be providing exciting workshops in plein air painting, involving new talents.
