After a day of painting in Chadds Ford and the

Ford Historical Society’s Barn Visitors Center

to frame and hang their paintings for a special

exhibit and art sale.

ticket admits up to two people to the preview

party. Artists must register in advance. 


The application for the FEB 2012 Plein Air event at the CFHS is on - line at http://chadds-ford-historical-society.org/events/paint-out-chadds-ford/


Because of the number of artists requesting to participate in 2012 and  the committee's desire to continue to keep the quality of art high, we  are using a new process for artist application.


Artists wishing to participate can apply on-line and send digital  

images of their work for the committee to review.


The application for jurying is only $10.


Artists accepted to the event will be notified in mid-January.  

Registration is due for only those artists accepted into the event.

We are providing breakfast and a hot dinner for all artists on  

Saturday and there will be housing again this year for artists living  an hour or more from Chadds ford.
