"Cottonwood Afternoon"  Pastel  9x12  Pat Meras

Dana Gallery, 246 N Higgins Ave, Missoula MT 59802
I'm very pleased and excited to be represented by this fine gallery in my home state.

"Twenty established artists from around the country come to Missoula, Montana and the surrounding area to paint en plein air, French for "in the open air."  They take on challenges of working in changing elements: heat, shifting light and moving subjects.  Plein air artists follow in the footsteps of the French impressionistsfrom the late 1800's and the American artists from the coast and southwest who followed the railroads west, painting scenes that informed the nation of Western grandeur in the 1900's.   The Dana Gallery is proud to continue the tradition of plein air work through holding this annual event.  The plein air work, as well as studio work from each artist, will hang in the gallery from July 12th-Aug 31st."  Dana Gallery
