Farm to Forest Plein Air Festival
October 13 - October 17
AMoA’s Farm to Forest Plein Air Festival is centered around the art of open air painting, known as painting en plein air. Plein air painting refers to the act of painting outdoors, capturing the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color and movement. During the festival, curious observers can watch artists paint on location, register for public workshops and celebrate with multiple days of family-friendly events hosted by the Alexandria Museum of Art. Paintings produced during the festival will be available for sale throughout the week and at the Arts Council’s Fall Art Walk. Join AMoA for the Palette Party, the festival’s final awards ceremony and art sale event featuring local vendors showcasing their signature dishes and drinks!
