Welcome to our website.  The French Creek Art Colony is a group of artists devoted to creating art en plein air in the historic French Creek Valley and beyond.  Founded in 2006 by Mimi Barclay Johnson, the small group of artists began gathering at the 1717 farm of the founder’s son on this valley’s South Branch of French Creek to paint, share ideas and information, and to celebrate and support each artist’s individuality.  These artists, working in oils, pastels, acrylics and transparent watercolors, meet at the invitation of gracious landowners and spend from one to four days at each location painting en plein air to capture nature’s incredible light on paper or canvas.  The artists have expanded their plein air travels to other parts of this country and the world, but are always returning to the French Creek Valley to gather together for fellowship and creativity.  Please stay and browse, visit the Gallery Pages of our Artists by clicking on each Artist’s name above, and contact us at frenchcreekart@gmail.com if you have any questions.
