Plein Air Abingdon | Opening Night
Abingdon Vineyards, 6:00 PM-8:00 PM
Plein air is defined as a “19th-century style of painting outdoors, or with a strong sense of the open air.” 2020 marks the fifth year of Plein Air Abingdon–a plein air paint-out and pop-up gallery that offers a place to create new work, sell work, and network with fellow artists and creators. Throughout the event, a juried plein air competition will take place around Abingdon, Virginia and the surrounding region.
Celebrate the opening night of Plein Air Abingdon! Join us for an evening reception to see artwork created that day at Abingdon Vineyards. Meet and mingle with the artists, and even pre–purchase some of their artwork! Proceeds from art sales are shared between the Festival and the artists, and help fund the Festival's art programs. Any additional donations made will help underwrite the cost of artists' dinners.
Food and wine will be provided.
