‘En plein air’ is a French expression meaning ’in the open air’, and refers to the act of painting outdoors with the subject in full view. Plein air captures the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, colour and movement. More details are available at www.coquitlam125.ca/plein-air.

About Coquitlam 125
Coquitlam is celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2016 with a year-long celebration that honours the community’s rich history and sets the stage for a dynamic future.
When Coquitlam was incorporated on July 25, 1891, it was a small agricultural community, with a state-of-the-art lumber mill – the future Fraser Mills – under construction near the Fraser River. French Canadians settled in the area in the early 1900s and established Maillardville, the largest Francophone centre west of the Rockies. Today, Coquitlam is home to over 140,000 people from diverse ethnic backgrounds, and over 6,200 businesses.
The Coquitlam 125 Anniversary Steering Task Force (CAST Force) is guided by the Coquitlam 125 vision – Stories told, stories to be created – as it engages the community through meaningful experiences that celebrate our heritage, create strong connections and inspire lasting legacies towards an exciting future.
