Plein Air Events 2021

This July we will be hosting multiple events focused on creating en Plein Air. Painting “en plein air” became popularized by French Impressionists who left the confines of their studios to paint “in the open air”. With these events, we are inviting you to CREATE en Plein Air, whether it be painting, composing, writing poetry or any other art form.


The Plein Air open call exhibition will be held August 3 - September 11. Entry forms are available here
