San Luis Obispo Plein Air Festival



This year I am thrilled to be included amongst fifty of the nation’s top plein air artists who have been selected to venture outdoors to paint the unspoiled landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes of San Luis Obispo County—one of the most picturesque areas on the California Central Coast. 

The 10th Annual Plein Air Festival comes to the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art from October 2-9, 2011. The Museum plays host to 50 the country’s most accomplished landscape painters who for one week grace the Central Coast, painting the seascapes, landscapes and town scenes of the area. During the week, there are events each night celebrating the painter and the style of painting known as Plein Air. 
 
A week-long celebration of plein air painting, the Festival also includes lectures, poetry readings, movies, and kids’ paint out in addition to the gala opening of the Festival Exhibition and Sale on Friday and Quick Draw and Live Auction on Saturday. The San Luis Obispo Plein Air Festival is produced by the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art in support of the Museum’s exhibition and educational programming.

Festival Dates: 10/3/2011 - 10/9/2011
Reception: 10/7/2011 7:30-9:00 p.m.
