This year, Plein Air Shorewood is a ONE DAY event and 35 artists are coming to paint the Village! All Events will be held at the lakefront at Atwater Park. The artwork will be for sale at the Lakefront at Atwater Park from 4-7pm (and all day directly from the artists).
Artists are not restricted in size or price, and may paint as small or as large as they’d like. They also may sell paintings created at past Plein Air Shorewood events. There is no gallery setup – instead, artists will be selling art off their easels, like the original plein air painters of Montmartre in Paris.
Atwater Park from 4-7pm will resemble an artists marketplace – we invite you to have a glass of wine, enjoy the music, meet the artists and peruse the art for sale!
