Plein Air Art Festival

 Friday, July 20, 2018 - Sunday, July 22  
Lakeside Grounds

The Plein Air Art Festival will begin on Friday, July 20 when more than 30 plein air artists across the Midwest arrive to paint outdoor landscapes until Sunday, July 22.

The term “en plein air” means painting “in the open air.”

Plein air artists will be painting scenes across the grounds, and Lakesiders are invited to watch them paint throughout the weekend.

This three-day event ends on Sunday, July 22 with a collaborative effort blending the artistic expression of the Plein Air Art Festival and the craftsmanship of the Lakeside Wooden Boat Society (LWBS) at the Lakeside Wooden Boat Show.

A Plein Air Paintout will be held from 12:30-2 p.m. on Sunday along the shoreline and in Central Park.

Children are invited to paint south of the Pavilion from 1-3:30 p.m. for a fee of $1. Proceeds support the C. Kirk Rhein, Jr. Center for the Living Arts.

Paintings that were completed by the plein air artists throughout the entire weekend will be available for purchase during the Wet Paint Sale, held south of the Pavilion from 2:30-4 p.m.
