En Train Air: When Painters Ride the Rails
Six of America's top plein air painters (Shelby Keefe, Aimee Erickson, Randy Sexton, Jason Sacran, Charlie Hunter, and Larry Moore) rode the rails over 2,700 miles to PACE, stopping to paint in a half-dozen small towns along the route of Amtrak's endangered Southwest Chief. Join the artists and moderator Eric Rhoads for a funny, wide-ranging discussion about the practicalities, pitfalls, challenges, and triumphs of traveling by rail on a painting adventure. The panel will be recorded and released as a podcast episode for The PleinAir Podcast with Eric Rhoads. All aboard!
