“Entrance to Suni Sands” by Ted Matz

 

 

 

Situated on the south shore of the Jupiter Inlet, the residents of Suni Sands enjoy views of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, the oldest existing structure in Palm Beach County. Home to senior citizens, veterans and native Floridians, this community was carefully built upon sacred Native American ground. The coastline is ripe with manatee, sea turtles, seagrass and local fishing boats. The famed Sperry Boathouse along the shore has hosted decades of community coastal activities.

 

 

Ted Matz, the Chair of Painting and Drawing at the Lighthouse ArtCenter said, “It was such a pleasure coordinating this group of plein air artists who produced a wonderful body of work that documents our local history, recording the past and present for the future to see. As part of the School of Art’s commitment to bring you the best in plein air painting, the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s 3rd Annual Plein Air Festival, March 10-13, 2016, will bring together the finest plein air painters in the country. We look forward to sharing all of these extraordinary plein air art experiences with the public.”

ABOUT PLEIN AIR

 

En plein air is a French expression which means “in the open air,” and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. The mid-19th century saw working in natural light become particularly important to the impressionists, which only increased with the introduction of paint in tubes, giving additional portability to the artists.
