En plein air is a French expression meaning "in the open air" used to describe painting outdoors, which involves all of the senses. Artists create a painting expressing the mood of a scene which includes not only the sights, but also the sounds, temperature, atmosphere and changing light. The Museum provided canvasses and paper to local artists to create their own plein air pieces depicting the Great Lakes Bay Region. View their work showcasing the beauty of this region.

Artists: Deanna Bergman, Judy Carr, Jane Faerber, Linda Grindahl, Luther Hale, Karen Janczewski, Jim Kelly, L.R. Marr, Diana Rohde, Julia Rohde, D. Joanne Rummel, Cinda Schantz, Jan Wegner, Alice Wilsey

scottpostcardFeatures over 100 works in a variety of media including acrylic, oil, wood, glass, steel, aluminum, found objects and Michigan alabaster. Influenced by true experiences in the artist’s life, the work is installed in the exhibition as a collection of stories that range from the spiritual – revealing images of angels, crosses and the cosmos – to the secular – depicting responses to contemporary events, pop culture and political affairs. Lurain’s work and his chosen titles draw upon his background as a musician and writer. Both are often play on words, titles of rock and roll songs or television programs, or simply left untitled for the viewer to decide what he was thinking.

Lurain painted a curious American landscape by alternating everyday images into imaginative new shapes, such as a cherub, a popular social network and a consumer product. In a number of paintings, hidden faces and flags become more visible after spending time in front of the work. In others, the images seem to unveil secrets, loneliness, evasions, corruption, satire and joy – sometimes all at once. In the end, Scott Lurain’s True Stories tells the story about the artist behind the work.
