Artists from Creative Collective descended upon the Inn last week for some Plein Aire painting. Laura Beard, coordinator of Creative Collective, tells us they are a group dedicated to fostering a creative and nurturing community for artists, artisans, and art lovers in Central New Jersey. Rick Baker and Michelle Rosenthal launched Creative Collective as a member group in February of 2013. Since then, the group has grown to over 230 members with a core group of 75 artists. They meet as a group three times each month to share art, socialize, work on art pieces together, and to learn from one another. Creative Collective can be found on Meetup and Facebook.
The artists who attended Plein Aire at Inn at Glencairn on Monday were Ellen Saxon, Michelle Rosenthal, Catherine Martzloff, Janet Waronker, Ellen Veden, David Cunningham, and Laura Beard. Some of their art work from that day is included in this post.
