Plein Air Weekend: Friday Quick Draw

Plein Air Weekend Quick Draw

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.

On Friday, August 2, artists paint their impressions of “Life Around  the Glens” during the Quick Draw. The public is welcome to watch the artists in action. Finished Quick Draw paintings will be on view and for sale at the Glen Arbor Town Hall, 6394 W. Western Avenue/M-22, on Friday, August 2, 5 – 6:30 pm. Linda Young, past Plein Air Weekend chairperson and museum educator retired from the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, will judge the paintings. There will be cash prizes. The event is free and open to the public.

Proceeds from the sale benefit the participating artist and the GAAC.

If you are an artist, please visit the GAAC “Registration and Information” page.
