About this event

This event is provided by Salem Art Association

Plein air painter Anton Pavlenko was born in the Ukraine and immigrated to
the United States with his family in 1990. Primarily self-taught, he copied
paintings of masters in his youth and took up plein air painting later in
life. In his work, Pavlenko strives to capture the essence of the landscape,
by trying to work from an intuitive state with effortless and swift strokes.
He states, “For me, a good landscape painting is always born outdoors –
out there in the elements. I focus less on capturing a visual snapshot and
more on a dynamic observation which employs all my senses.” His work has
been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions and is in several
private and public collections across the country.

A reception will be held in conjunction with the openings of Confluence:
April Waters and Bets Cole and Window/Mirror – Photographs in India by
Frank Miller from 6-8 pm on Friday, September 23. The reception and the
exhibition are free and open to the public.
