Plein Air Richmond brings artists from all over the United States to Richmond for one amazing week of painting our beautiful and historic city. Plein air painting is typically done outside rather than in a studio. The term comes from the French en plein air, meaning "in the open air." Participating artists consider Plein Air Richmond to be one of the top plein air events in the country − it is helping to put Richmond on the map as an arts destination for the artists and patrons alike.
The event will take place June 19 to 25 with highlights including a ticketed collectors' preview sale on Friday, June 23, a public art sale on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25 and a "Fast and Fresh" two-hour painting competition on Saturday, June 24 in Carytown. "Fast and Fresh" paintings can be purchased right off the easel! The wonderful art in the show will include oil paintings and watercolors in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and prices. Plein Air Richmond pieces are all created throughout the week of June 19 through 25 and daily painting locations will include The Fan, Church Hill, Monument Avenue, Rocketts Landing and more. The public is encouraged to observe the artists in action.

WHAT IS PLEIN AIR PAINTING?
"A painting done outside rather than in a studio. The term comes from the French en plein air, meaning 'in the open air'. The impressionists were particularly interested in the influence of changing light outdoors on color."
