May 13 – June 29, 2019

13th Annual Wayne Plein Air Festival
Monday, May 13- Sunday, May 19
The 13th Annual Wayne Art Center Plein Air Festival kicks off Monday, May 13, with the arrival of 32 juried, nationally recognized and emerging artists who come to Wayne, Pennsylvania to capture the cool atmosphere and lush greens of spring in the Delaware Valley. Traveling from location to location over the course of five days, artists swiftly paint “en plein air” (French for open air), creating a trove of work unimaginable to most. As one of the premier plein air events in the country, Wayne Art Center’s Plein Air Festival offers artists the unique opportunity to showcase work created during the festival in spacious, light-filled galleries during an exhibition that hangs until the end of June. 

This year’s juror, Joe Paquet, comes to Wayne Art Center from Minneapolis, MN.  Paquet is an Emeritus Member of The Plein Air Painters of AmericaThe Salmagundi Club and a Signature Member of The California Art Club.

Exhibition hours:
Sunday, May 19 – Saturday, June 29
Monday through Friday, 10am – 5pm
Saturdays, 10am – 4pm
