On select weekends this summer, notable artists are invited to Ocean House to share their artistic vision and give a demonstration of their skills.
Enjoy a glass of wine and reception at Ocean House on Saturday evening from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. to meet the artist. Earlier that day, catch Diane Washa in action as the sea air, sweeping views of the Atlantic and more than 150 years of history serve as inspiration for a work of art.
About Diane Washa
Award-winning plein air painter, Diane Washa captures the dynamic and varying atmospheres of landscapes across the country. Often painterly and dreamlike, occasionally almost to the point of abstraction, Washa’s paintings not only depict the qualities of light, air, and color of these scenes but manifest the indescribable aura and presence of the spaces.
Washa came late to her now-productive life as an artist. A business executive by day, she became serious about her lifelong passion for painting in 2005. Years later, she was exhibiting at galleries and art exhibitions, including as a featured artist. She has a degree in fine art from Milton College and an MBA from the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater. She continues her quest to learn and grow in her art through studies with several admired painters and is part of a network of artists dedicated to the en plein air approach.
