In the Summer of 2016 we introduced outdoor art for our summer show entitled Out the Door Art. We created over 30 acrylic paintings on plywood which we treated to be able to withstand the weather and to be displayed outside, during the warmer months, rain or shine. We displayed the art on easels and on the sides of gallery, house and studio. Clients were able to appreciate art in a garden setting.
