Atherton artist shows plein air works

by Allison Silverman

Susan Elwart Hall, an Atherton artist with an impressionistic style, is opening a new show, where she embraces the plein air tradition.

She is the featured artist at Viewpoint Gallery, 315 State St. in Los Altos, through Aug. 4. A reception for the artist will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 8.

Her exhibit covers a range of subjects, from flowers and landscapes to jugs and people. She is concentrating on plein air paintings and portraiture, but is including still lives and figurative work in her show as well.

She says she paints directly on site, and searches for simplicity in her technique. Her artistic training has varied, from interior design to illustration.

She has won several awards, including the Artist Choice award at the Sacramento plein air competition.
