Professor of Art Véronique Plesch contributed an essay titled “Plein Air and Beyond” to the 2022 summer issue of the Maine Arts Journal: UMVA Quarterly, in which she “considers the tension between faithful rendering of a vista and artistic practice and license and, along with it, the motivations for capturing a particular landscape.” Plesch also wrote the introduction to this issue, “Beyond Plein Air,” making a point to discuss every contributor in the issue.
