‘Painting En Plein Air’ opens Saturday
“Painting En Plein Air,” a landscape art show featuring original canvases by Connecticut artists Anda Styler and Sergey Stepanenko, will open at the River Road Gallery in Wilton Center on Saturday, Dec. 5.
Styler painting outdoors, or en plein air creates fresh interpretations of nature’s beauty. She graduated from Parsons School of Design, New York in 1983. Working in both acrylic and oil she moves between the two mediums; sometimes working on panel or on linen. Her art has been featured in American Art Collector, Country Gardeners Magazine and her paintings and technique are published in two books by North Light Publications.
Stepanenko is a classically trained, Russian born master artist. He was born in Barnaul, Russia in 1956. Stepanenko graduated from the Fine Art College in Frunze, Kyrgyzstan and Moscow Printing University. As a member of St. Philip Artists’ Guild, he has painted en plein air along with the guild when they paint Sheffield Island off the coast of Norwalk.
The public is invited to the opening and artist reception on Saturday, from 5 to 8 p.m. The show will run through Jan. at the gallery, at 21 River Road in Wilton Center, and is on view Monday through Saturday 10 to 6.
