Plein Air Paintings by Jason Sacran - Curated by the Arkansas Arts Council

En plein air is a French term that describes the painter’s activity of painting “in the open air.” Jason Sacran’s plein air paintings are little gems of paint that capture scenes throughout the day and evening in a variety of settings and differing light quality.

“In general, my work is about the process of creating by painting subjects that evoke a mood or feeling introspectively,” says Fort Smith resident Sacran. “I am interested in documenting things of today, mostly with overlooked or even forgotten aspects of everyday life – scenes we pass by every day, objects we often use, people we know well, but hardly ever think twice about.”

This exhibit continues in the Second Floor Gallery through July 7, 2013.
