Art has the power to connect people to the environment. “Through their paintings and photographs the artists of Plein Air Peconic capture the effects of light and atmospheric conditions here on the East End of Long Island,” declares art historian Terry Wallace.

The Plein Air Peconic artists will exhibit artworks featuring farms, beaches and wetlands of Eastern Long Island. Many are conserved with the help of the Peconic Land Trust.

About Plein Air Peconic:

Plein Air Peconic is a fellowship of artists dedicated to the tradition of working on site to create images of Long Island’s East End. They share a mutual interest with the Peconic Land Trust in preserving agricultural landscapes and our beautiful watershed vistas. An important aspect of Plein Air Peconic’s work is to draw attention to land preservation in the community, encourage environmental awareness, and to promote a greater appreciation of landscape painting and photography through the exhibition of our artwork.

In 2005, thirteen plein air artists and landscape photographers organized Plein Air Peconic. Plein Air Peconic works in the tradition of Tile Club members William Merritt Chase and Winslow Homer, who are recognized as the first Plein Air painters on the East End. Over the past decade, Plein Air Peconic has exhibited widely in galleries on both the North and South Fork.  They have created travelling exhibitions for East End libraries to further land conservation education, and hosted forums on the intersection of landscape art and conservation.
