10th Annual Winter Park Paint Out

April 22 – 28, 2018

The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculp­ture Gar­dens will host its 10th Annual Win­ter Park Paint Out dur­ing the last full week of April 2018. 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 2018 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.

If you love Winter Park and the excitement of competition then you don’t want to miss the plein air Quick Draw Competition at the City of Winter Park’s Earth Day Celebration. Join the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens in Winter Park’s Central Park for a Quick Draw Competition to kick off our Winter Park Paint Out April 22-28.
