Plein Air Festival - Parrsboro Style! (Sun. 18 Jun, 2017 9:00 am)

Join us for a weekend of festivities!  On June 16, 17 & 18 thirty-seven top plein air artists are coming to Parrsboro from Maine, Ontario, Quebec, the Atlantic Provinces, New Jersey, Ohio and Massachusetts.  They will compete for $6,000 in cash awards, and you can see them painting the spectacular Bay of Fundy/Parrsboro Shore from Bass River to Advocate.

Plein air - painting in the open air - is the hottest art movement in North America.  Parrsboro Creative has joined this amazing network by creating its own event, which wil be the first international Plein Air Festival in Canada.

These festivals are a wonderful way to bring artists and the public together in a celebrational experience that gives people an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors while also having the chance to witness the creation of new works of art.  And who knows, you might see a one-of-a-kind, beautiful painting to buy and take with you!
