Casey Chalem Anderson makes paintings for people who love the water and crave the calm and tranquility of being near the sea. She maintains a full-time painting studio in Sag Harbor, New York directly across from magnificent Noyac Bay. The ever-changing light, wind and colors of the water provide a dynamic source of inspiration for her paintings.

The seashore can transport people to a calm and peaceful place. To foster that tranquility and connection with the sea, Casey has launched the new weekly newsletter “Breath of Salt Air.” The free newsletter includes photos, sketches, paintings and words that are designed to inspire readers with the experience of being seaside.

This weekend, Casey is exhibiting her paintings in “Art in the Open” at Ashawagh Hall. "Art in the Open" is presented by Plein Air Peconic, an artist group she helped to found. The group is dedicated to helping the Peconic Land Trust conserve the natural beauty of the East End by raising funds for conservation through artwork sales.

"Art in the Open” features landscape paintings and photographs made by members of Plein Air Peconic. It will be held at Ashawagh Hall in Springs (outside of East Hampton Village) from July 19 to 21, 2013. The public is invited to a Wine Reception on Saturday, July 20, from 5 to 8 p.m. The exhibition will be open on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Casey’s large oil painting “Sara’s Garden” is part of the show. Stretching 5-feet wide, "Sara's Garden" fully encompasses your peripheral vision with a profusion of flowers silhouetted against a tranquil Gardener’s Bay.

Another large painting is “Aqua Storm”. A waterspout on the horizon creates phenomenal shades of aqua and teal, making our local waters look mysteriously tropical.

Energized and powerful ocean waves magnetize many of us while at the shore. Casey captures the sensation of being besides the powerful Atlantic Ocean in both small and large paintings. Intimate works are 8 x 10 inches while paintings portraying jumbo waves occupy large paintings extending 4 feet by 6 feet.

Casey only uses the colors that she loves.

“It is the color that first inspires me and magnetizes me to the scene," says Casey. "I'm always on the lookout for something gorgeous. Colors in nature are astounding!”
