Winter Park Paint Out
April 23 – 29, 2017
The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens will host its ninth Annual Winter Park Paint Out during the last full week of April 2017. 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 2017 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 23-29.
