On February 13, artists  met in the Conservatory at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens for an indoor Winter Painting Meet. As a special bonus, Sharon Griffes Tarr, a Master Member of the Great Lakes Plein Air Painters Association, conducted a  free demonstration on how to approach  a plein air painting. The demonstration was in oils but the expert information could apply to any medium. The event was well attended with at least 20 artists present.  Following the demonstration the artists scattered to various locations throughout the Conservatory to work on their own paintings.
