Plein Air Brandywine Valley

Plein Air Brandywine Valley 2015 Juried Competition

Plein Air Brandywine Valley 2015,  Juried Competition to benefit Children’s Beach House

Tomorrow, at sunrise, I’ll be setting up my easel in the beautiful Brandywine Valley to paint alongside some of the best plein air painters and photographers. 75 to be exact!  During the next four days, we’ll capture a wide variety of scenic properties located in the Brandywine Valley.  Last year the weather was a bit wet, but it did not hinder this fabulous event.  Looks like sunshine will be in abundance, so I can’t wait to start painting!

Each artist submits at least four paintings which are judged and then displayed for viewing and purchase at an opening gala scheduled for Friday, October 23 from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. at The Visitor Center of Winterthur Museum and Garden located in Wilmington, DE.  Gala tickets can be purchased online  A portion of the proceeds from the art sales will benefit Children’s Beach House. A great organization doing a world of good!

The works will remain on display for purchase and viewing throughout the remainder of the weekend and are free to the public. (Saturday, October 24, 2015 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Sunday, October 25, 2015 from noon – 3 p.m.) I’ll be at Winterthur Saturday and Sunday afternoon if anyone wants to stop by and check out all the artwork.  It really is a beautiful exhibit!
