Artists from across the region will be setting up easels along the streets and byways of Sandwich to paint or draw their favorite scene and to share the experience with the public.
Plein Air 2019, which will take place on July 12 from 8 AM to 1 PM, is the third annual plein air event sponsored by the Sandwich Arts Alliance. Artists, wearing bright green aprons, will be painting or sketching en plein air (outside) at a location in town of their own choosing.
“The quality of the work should be very high based on the artists waiting to sign up”, said event manager Denise Chasse, who described the event as perfect for the Sandwich Arts Alliance to undertake because it brings art into the community and showcases local talent.
The public is invited to view the finished artwork, meet the artists, and bid on their favorite pieces at a reception and silent auction July 12 from 5 to 7 PM at the at The Sagamore Inn Restaurant, 1131 Sagamore Road.
