Plein Air painting can mean so many different things to so many people depending on: 1) who is painting it, 2) who is defining it and 3) who is invoking its simple tenets in personal practice. Denise Dumont is an artist capable of all three but with a personal conviction toward the latter.

Lugging materials and supplies into the wilderness is a rough and tumble business. Painting in the wind and rain can be unpleasant, but the call of a bruised sky, whipped marsh grasses and the play of light and shadow as a cold front passes is the stuff that defines tough to a painter who enjoys the day  whatever the day may bring.

In this exhibition of over thirty pieces, Dumont displays the consummate skills of a master picture maker, but more importantly, the true nature that is the heart of the landscape painter. - read more
