Dayton Metro Library will host the work of Dayton artist Dr. Hyacinth Paul in a Plein Aire Paintings from Provence and Barcelona exhibit at two locations:
Plein air (French for “outdoors”) painting involves the artist painting outside, on location. Because of her grant, Paul was able to study the art of plein air painting by attending a workshop in Provence, France and taking an art tour in Barcelona, Spain. Her work is both abstract and realistic, and according to her website, is “mostly done in oil, acrylics, and mixed media and is very colorful because [she believes] that color sparks synesthesia and involuntarily evokes feeling of joy.”
