"The Joys of Plein Air Painting" with Robert Carsten

     Award-winning local artist Robert Carsten, PSA-M will present a lively program on plein air painting on Wednesday evening, April 29, at 6:30 in the Library's Flinn Room.  Carsten will take the audience on a visual journey from the historical roots of plein air (meaning "in open air," or outdoors) to its place in the contemporary art scene. Artists and art lovers will learn tips and techniques for successful plein air paintings while he demonstrates his traveling easel. The program is presented in partnership with the planning committee of a plein air painting event on October 10, 2015 called “Wet Paint Live” (WPL). Anyone interested in art and artists will find Carsten’s talk of particular interest, as well as anyone curious about the “Wet Paint Live” painting event.   
     Robert Carsten is a master pastelist in the Pastel Society of America (PSA-M) and a master circle pastelist in the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS).  For more information and artist registration for "Wet Paint Live visit
