Come watch regional artists paint in the great outdoors! Attend the awards ceremony and sale afterwards to see who takes home the prizes. Purchase for yourself what gets painted that day! The painters will be outside downtown (near the Yeiser Art Center) and in Lower Town (near the Etcetera Coffeehouse). Sound like fun? Then come to the first Plein Air (outdoor painting) event ever held in Paducah Creative City.
Plein air (or “outdoor painting ”) competitions are held around the world. Artists travel to these events to demonstrate their skills in public and enjoy the festivities associated with the competition. The Art Guild of Paducah invites artists to Paducah this spring for this event which includes a contest (with cash and other prizes) and an exhibition and sale of the work in a gallery setting.
This year that gallery event will be held in the Lower Town Arts District at 720 Harrison Street on Saturday, June 1, 2019.
