Customs House Museum Celebrates Tennessee Artists with New Exhibits

 

The Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – Plein air is a term derived from the French phrase en plein air, which literally means ‘in the open air’. In the late 1800s the Impressionists ventured out of their studios into nature to investigate and capture the effects of sunlight and different times of day on a subject, creating a new style of painting. Jason Saunders may be painting far from the French countryside, but his landscapes of Tennessee are just as breath-taking.
