Pikes Peak Watercolor Society president Nancy Neale says the organization chose the title “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” as a nod to “what an evening of artists painting live downtown, plein air would feel like... truly a midsummer night’s dream in downtown Colorado Springs.” Plein air painting, a term for painting outdoors, allows artists to break their leashes, unconstrained by the four walls of a studio and its implied rules. Including such well-known names as Eric Fetsch, Mary Gorman and Rick Forsyth, 25 artists have been selected from the society’s 160 members to do plein air painting demonstrations, and more artists will be on hand to discuss the art of watercolor with onlookers. While you’re watching a piece of art come together, learning about the technique behind it, and enjoying the summer evening air, take advantage of the several food trucks they’ll have on-site and settle down on the Pioneers Museum lawn.
