Bucks County Plein Air Festival


PleinAir_LogoFESTIVAL.jpg

Thirty nationally recognized artists from all over the United States will participate in the fourth annual Bucks County Plein Air Festival from October 1-6, 2019 to produce art from life (as opposed to in the studio). The juried show awards more than $15,000 in prizes and culminates in two signature events, a VIP Collector's Preview event on Saturday, October 5 and a public festival on October 6. The planning committee extends its deepest appreciation to the artists, art patrons, hosts and sponsors, and countless volunteers who allow us to welcome some of the country's most accomplished artists to vibrant and historic Bucks County.
