The French Creek Art Colony began as a small plein air group organized by Mimi Barclay Johnson in 2000 to paint coastal towns, farms, public/private gardens and historic sites.  It became the French Creek Art Colony (FCAC) in 2006 when artists were invited to spent time and paint together at founder Mimi Barclay Johnson’s son’s 1717 farm on the south branch of French Creek.  Beginning with the historic French Creek Valley, surrounding area landscapes and farms, the group now paints all over the world, singly, in pairs, in small numbers or as a group.  The artists lunch, hang out together, and paint together as much as they can throughout the year.  Some artists finish their work en plein air; others finish their plein air start in the studio, or create a different, perhaps larger, work from a small plein air painting.   Shows for FCAC as a group follow.  For shows in which individual members are exhibiting, please visit that member’s website through the About the Artists page.
