Plein Air Carolina is an organization of amateur and professional painters located in Salisbury NC.   Plein Air literally translates to ‘painting in the open air’.  Artists paint in a variety of locations, with the security of working together and enjoying the companionship of fellow painters. It is an opportunity for all members to grow professionally. Membership is open to all interested painters; artists need not have ‘plein air’ experience to be members.
