Plein Air at the Homestead

The Friends of Wallisch are happy to announce a new event in their commitment to the arts.

 A Plein Air event will be held Sept 17th from 10am and last into the afternoon as long as artists are inspired to continue creating.  (Rain Date Sept 18th.)

Plein Air painting is the act of capturing the elusive light and shadows in the constant changing great outdoors.

At least 10 artists have committed and will ascend on the Wallisch Homestead with easels, canvas, brushes and paints to paint in “the moment”.  A watercolor painting usually takes about an hour or two to complete.

 All artists with Plein Air experience are encouraged to attend. The event is open to all artists who will also be able to show their works for sale at the event.

 The site will be open to the public to enjoy the process and perhaps support our wonderful area artists. A portion of the sales proceeds will benefit The Friends of Wallisch Homestead.

Artists are encouraged to contact John Hefferon at for information regarding attending and displaying at this first annual event.

Educators and students are also welcome.
