Art exhibit featuring local painters on display at Mill Creek MetroParks

A free art exhibit featuring local painters is on display in the Weller Gallery at Fellows Riverside Gardens in Youngstown.

Jaime Yohman, community engagement director for Mill Creek MetroParks, announced Thursday that the display As Did Monet, Artists Paint the Landscape will be on display through June 2 during normal operating hours.

Fellows Riverside Gardens is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is closed Mondays.

This exhibit features over 50 works from local artists who paint in the Plein Air style.

Plein Air is the French term for open air painting.

These Plein Air style artists may be seen painting the landscapes throughout surrounding counties. They are a meet-up outdoor artist group that originated out of the Davis YMCA art studio.

Some of their favorite places are Mill Creek MetroParks, Beaver Creek State Park, Poland forest, sunflower fields, farms, old villages, apple orchards, ponds, and creeks.

A Meet the Artist session will take place on Saturday, May 4 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Weller Gallery at Fellows Riverside Gardens.
