Welcome Plein Air Art Lovers

Plein air painterThe Seven Lively Artists have been an integral part of the Central Pennsylvania art community for more than 50 years. Although their artwork encompasses a variety of subjects and styles, they are known for their passion for painting "en plein air," which literally means “in the open air. “

As you browse their personal art pages, you’ll recognize the bridges, rivers, streams, barns, street scenes and other notable sites in and around the greater Harrisburg area.

We hope you’ll enjoy this web gallery tour by visiting each artist’s personal gallery page. Check out the “History” page to discover how the group got started and how it evolved. The “Exhibitions” page will lead you to the galleries that are currently showing the Seven Lively Artists’ artwork and special en plein air painting events. If you would like to send a message to the artists individually or collectively, go to the “Contact Us” page for emails.
