Please join us for an exhibition featuring the works of plein air artist Peg Usner, Sept. 9 – 30, 2017. Peg has an inherent interest in plein air painting. Her series of oil paintings captures the essence of her world.
Of her work, the artist says, “Whether that is a neighborhood street with the sounds of vehicles, conversations or a bicycle bell; or the fragrance of the magnolia tree in bloom, an egret taking flight and the warmth of the sun, it becomes part of the frame of my understanding of the subject I am painting. I am there. The bond that is formed and cannot be recreated in the studio, I know this place intimately.”
The mission of the St. Tammany Art Association is to provide quality programming and cultural enrichment to the community, to support established artists, promote emerging artists, and produce educational arts related activities for adults and children and in doing so enhance life in St. Tammany Parish.
