Plein Air Weekend: Saturday Paint Out
Painters from across Michigan and the Midwest converge on Glen Arbor August 1-3 for the Glen Arbor Arts Center’s 11th Plein Air Weekend. This annual event is highlighted by three outdoor painting competitions that offer participants both daytime and sundown events; and two exhibits of original work.
The weekend’s culminating event, the Paint Out Sale on Saturday, August 3, features work by 65 artists who registered early to be included in this all-day painting event. The evening viewing and sale is 5:30 – 7:30 pm at the Glen Arbor Town Hall. The paintings are complemented by an appetizer/wine reception. More than 100 works of art will be exhibited and offered for sale on a first-come basis (at the sound of the gong at 5:45). Petoskey painter Heidi Marshall will judge and award cash prizes for the best paintings. A People’s Choice Award will also be given.
The evening’s show and sale is a ticketed exhibition. Admission is $15 [before July 31]; or $20 at the door; children ages 10 – 15, $10; children under 9 are admitted without charge.
Proceeds from the sale benefit the participating artist and the GAAC.
