  • 5/3/2019 - Mark N. Brown at Downtown Art Center Featuring - First Friday - See notes

    Mark Brown's dream is to build a strong plein air painting community on Oahu. The show organizer left it up to Mark to invite his friends and classes, whoever would be good contributors for the first art show in the Downtown Art Gallery. Brown's thoughts are that "Plein Air Painters are like a branch/breed (genre) of art, like how Jazz is with Music. It's an eclectic group that would benefit from more sharing: Painting is not a team sport, but painters can always share opportunities that would benefit all of us as Artist.
