April 24th — 30th, 2016: To benefit the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Garden
About the Winter Park Paint Out
The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens will host its eighth Annual Winter Park Paint Out during the last full week of April 2016. Twenty-five professionally acclaimed plein air artists will roam across our charming city capturing many of your favorite landscapes and landmarks with oils, watercolors and pastels.
Plein Air - a French term meaning “in the open air” — describes art works painted outdoors with the subject directly in view rather than in a studio. Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a land-scape or subject by incorporating natural light, color and movement into their works.
Join us for the 2016 Winter Park Paint Out. If you’re an art lover, a patron, or just curious to see what the buzz is about, stop by the Polasek Museum to see the latest from the 25 artists in action! The museum, sculpture gardens and gallery will be open FREE to the public through this exciting week-long event. Completed paintings will be hung in the gallery’s ‘Wet Room’ immediately — watch as the week progresses and the gallery fills with plein air artwork. Be sure to visit often to watch the artists work and to purchase these one-of-a kind paintings the moment they are hung on the wall.
