Sonoma Plein Air Festival
The annual Sonoma Plein Air Festival, Sept. 10-15, 2018, is a celebration of outdoor painting.
Nationally acclaimed Plein Air artists create 8-12 paintings out and about in Sonoma County and nearby in Marin and San Francisco during Plein Air Week. On Tuesday, Sept. 11, you can watch artists in action during the Quick Draw Event. Participating Plein Air artists set up easels in the Sonoma Plaza and have just 90 minutes to complete a painting, frame it, and display it for immediate sale! Patrons and guests will gather at Buena Vista Winery for the Sonoma Plein Air Gala on Friday, Sept. 14.
Everyone can join in the fun of the Plein Air Festival on Saturday, Sept. 15 with the Art Show and Sale on Sonoma Plaza. Enjoy the art show, artists demonstrations, live music, and hands-on art activities for all ages, including children's art classes.
