|Alexandra Tyng "Painters in the Park" 2010 Private Collection|
Philadelphia-based artist Alexandra Tyng (b.1955) painted this while on a painting expedition in South Carolina with a group of friends. One morning the group gathered in a park in Charleston to paint. The weather proved unexpectedly chilly and you can practically see the frosty clouds of their breath as the artists shiver and paint en plein air. From left to right the artists pictured are: Mia Bergeron, Cindy Procious, Alia El-Bermani, Linda Tracey Brandon and Stanka Kordic.
This group was brought together by the popular and influential blog Women Painting Women, and these artists have already had more than one show together. More information about the blog can be seen here. The website of Alexandra Tyng can be found here. Tyng is represented by Fischbach Gallery in New York, Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia, and in Maine by both gWatson Gallery and Dowling Walsh Gallery.
