Plein Air Richmond
We are excited to announce the first annual "Plein Air Richmond", an event presented and hosted by Brazier Gallery to benefit the Richmond Symphony. We hope that you will be one of the 50 plein air painters who will be setting up their easels to paint vistas all over our beautiful historic city for a week, including such sites as the James River, our unique neighborhoods, beautiful parks, and our historic monuments and architecture. Many of you already know that there is much to paint here. The Fan District is the largest single historic area in the nation…and Church Hill is even older Film makers love to shoot historical movies here.
The Juror for Submissions will be M. Stephen Doherty, Editor-in-Chief of “Plein Air Magazine” and the Judge of Awards will be the preeminent American portrait artist and painter, Everett Raymond Kinstler.
“Plein Air Richmond” will take place from Sunday, June 17 through Saturday, June 23, 2012. On Friday, June 22, there will be a Collector’s Preview (with cocktails and the opportunity for patrons and collectors to meet the artists) followed by an elegant garden-themed Gala, a seated dinner accompanied by musicians from the Symphony. “Fast and Fresh” (our version of “Quick Draw”) will take place Saturday morning, June 23, on our famous Monument Avenue.
Plein Air Richmond will award a Grand Prize, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, and a “Fast and Fresh” Award among others. There will be $10,000+ in awards.
“Plein Air Richmond” is going to be exciting, fun, and different from many other locations, so please mark your calendar now and save the dates!
