View our 9th annual plein air exhibition and sale. The virtual show displays these works "fresh off the easel" – for your enjoyment as well as to purchase.
On Saturday, May 22, more than 50 artists painted “en plein air”. This virtual paint-out allowed artists to work from any location in the world!
Participants then uploaded three specific photos for the exhibit: The work, the inspiration for the work and a photo of his/herself (in the environment of the work). From this, our team of tech experts created a virtual exhibit for your viewing pleasure.
Public viewing exhibition and sale is free
The exhibit and sale opened on the evening of Sunday, May 30, and will continue until Sunday, June 13, at 6 pm.
Plein air artists from Leelanau County and beyond were invited to participate in this event. Artists will donate forty percent of the art sales to the Old Art Building. Prizes for Best of Show and People’s Choice will be awarded.
Please have a look and let us know your favorite by casting your vote on the web platform's page!
The painting that wins the juried Best of Show award will be used as the key image identity in the poster for the annual Art Leelanau Benefit and Art Exhibition in July. The poster is reproduced as a high quality art print and made available for purchase throughout the year.
