WILTON MANORS, FL— Art Gallery 21, Wilton Manors’ local neighborhood art gallery located at the Island City Cultural Center (600 NE 21st Court, Wilton Manors, Fla. 33305) is pleased to announce it will host a French-influenced Exhibit and Outdoor Painting Event, The New Golf: Plein Aire Painting, from Nov. 19th to Dec. 10th, 2022.

Featuring artist Janet Onofrey
‘The Davie Painters,”
Lisa Boyd, Monika Hurter, Natalie Jones, Heidi Reiter, Angie Riserbato and Aviva Sasson.

Derived from the French term meaning ‘painting in the outside air,’ Plein Aire painting is one of the fastest growing forms of art sweeping the world, much like the golf boom did back in the 1980’s. “We worked with our community of artists to develop the idea of this exhibit and can’t wait to introduce one of the first plein aire painting exhibits in Wilton Manors,” said Constance Ruppender, co-founder and president of Art Gallery 21.

Florida is one of the top retirement states in the U.S. and locally, Art Gallery 21 has seen growth in the number of local retired residents taking up this art form around Wilton Manors and across Broward County.

Art Gallery 21 will host an exhibit opening for the public where visitors can meet the artists and mingle among local art lovers while enjoying beautiful original art including watercolors, oils and acrylics paintings on canvases, boards and paper with diverse subject matter and styles. Meet the artists from 6 to 8 PM on Saturday, November 19, 2022. Music, light refreshments and new friends await visitors of Art Gallery 21 in Wilton Manors, Fla. “To add to this exciting Art Gallery 21 exhibit, we will also host a ‘plein aire paint out’ along Wilton Drive on November 19th beginning at 8 AM with some of the show’s featured artists. Artists are invited to set up their easels around the Art & Entertainment District, giving locals an early viewing of “Plein Aire” painting.
