Savoring the Moments is a group exhibit featuring the work of 14 local artists from the Nova Plein Air Artists group (NPAA). In light of the current circumstances, the art in this exhibit reflects everyday moments that the artists deem special. Savoring the Moments aims to share a positive and uplifting viewpoint within a changed world. Now more than ever is the perfect time to truly “savor the moments” of life, appreciating the beauty in all that is around us.

Founded in 2016, Nova Plein Air Artists (NPAA) was initiated due to a shared desire to explore the idea of painting outdoors. Since then, NPAA has evolved into a creative, educational and social
network of local artists committed to painting weekly at organized “paint-outs.” Plein air locations are chosen for their diversity, varying from state and county parks to rustic farms, vineyards, and urban settings within the Northern Virginia and Greater Washington, DC area. While NPAA is primarily a plein air group, members also engage in painting other subjects including still life, genre, and portraiture.
