11th Annual Winter Park Paint Out

The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens will host the eleventh annual Winter Park Paint Out Plein Air Festival from April 21 to 27, 2019. The museum, sculpture gardens, and gallery will be free to the public during the week-long event. Twenty-five professionally-acclaimed plein air artists will paint at the Polasek Museum and locations nearby with art lovers invited watch the artists at work, view their recently completed paintings in the gallery, and attend free painting demonstrations. More than ten free instructional demos with the artists at the Polasek Museum and nearby locations will take place during the week of the event.
Artwork created during the Winter Park Paint Out will be available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds going to support the preservation, maintenance, and operation of the museum and gardens.
The festival closes with the Winter Park Paint Out Garden Party on Saturday, April 27, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Polasek Museum. At this ticketed event, guests can meet the artists, purchase their work, and see the entire exhibition of more than 200 paintings while enjoying excellent food and company. The Winter Park Paint Out also includes free art education for underserved students and an emerging artist program to mentor an up-and-comer in the genre of plein air.
