2011 Plein Air Festival
May 1, 2011
The 2011 Wayne Art Center Plein Air Festival will take place from May 17 May 21, 2011. Artists may paint anywhere within a specified radius of the Wayne Art Center. On May 21, the public will have a chance to observe plein air artists painting in downtown Wayne. The Wayne area is known for scenic beauty and historical landmarks. Painting locations will include pastoral vistas, gardens, historic and unique architectural structures, charming towns, neighborhoods and industrial areas.
The sale and exhibition of paintings completed during the festival will be featured at a Gala Preview and Artists' Reception on Saturday, May 21 from 610 pm. The show will open to the public on Sunday, May 22 and continue through June 24, 2011.
Artists should submit 3 digital images of their original plein-air paintings. Work must have been completed within the past two years.
Any two-dimensional paintings are acceptable, but work must be done completely "en plein air" without the assistance of photographs. A portion of proceeds raised through sales will benefit Wayne Art Center exhibition and educational programs.
