Calling all plein air artists and art collectors for this special one-time-only event to support the Festival’s fine art prizes in Juried Fine Art, Photography, and Youth Art.
On Saturday, May 21 from 10 am – 3 pm artists will gather in downtown Abingdon with their easels for a plein air painting day. Mark your calendars for this unique opportunity to see artists at work capturing the beauty of our town. Artists, this is a great opportunity to try something new and challenge yourself creatively, while networking with fellow artists and art collectors.
On Sunday, May 22 from 2 – 4 pm a pop-up gallery of works created on Saturday will be open at the William King Museum of Art. These new pieces, along with others from our artists, will be available for sale and auction. Proceeds from this art sale will be split evenly between the artists and the Festival, so you have the opportunity to support local small business artists as well as the Festival.
