Art Events

Massachusetts Plein Air Artists Group

The Massachusetts Plein Air Artists are artists, including photographers, who meet weekends year round in the environs of Massachusetts to paint, draw and photograph the outdoors. The moderator posts weekly where we are to meet and when. Typical plein air sites include fields, historic sites, lakes, ocean, saltmarsh, rivers, and hills, all accessible easily. All media (drawing, photography, pastels, oils, watercolor, etc.) are welcome as are all skill levels. Group size will be limited so to keep the outings informal, manageable, and friendly. Family members are welcome, although specific quiet rules apply. The culture of the group is supportive and non-critical. Membership is free and artists are under no obligation to attend outings.

Hi Nancy,
I was talking to Cindy Nothe today and the Quaboag Hills Photography Club became an interesting conversation. May I get more information on membership fees, events, and anything else you have at the present time.
Thank you much, Lynn

Hello Lynn, The club is open to everyone. We meet on the second Saturday for a photo walk and on the fourth Tuesday for photo viewing and critique. The details are on the Facebook page
We also have a social network site which can be reached by going from the Facebook page. So far we have not settled on dues but to cover expenses we will likely have a small dues, it will depend upon the group and how many we are and what direction we wish to go in.
