Plein Air Weekend: Paint Out
Painters from across Michigan and the Midwest will converge on Glen Arbor August 6 and 7 for the Glen Arbor Arts Center’s 12th Plein Air Weekend. This year the event will be highlighted by two outdoor painting competitions, and two exhibitions of original work. The public is welcome to watch the artists in action.
The weekend’s culminating event, the Paint Out exhibit and sale features work by 70 artists who registered early to be included in this all-day painting event. The evening viewing and sale is 5:30 pm – 7 pm at the Glen Arbor Township Hall. 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).

Entry to Saturday evening’s show and sale is ticketed. Admission will be $10 per person and and available at the door only. Children under 12 are free.
