Portland Art Museum, Oregon Invitational Plein Air Paint Out, Sat and Sunday, August 4 & 5

Where: In the Portland park blocks in front of the museum

Sat, 4 Aug, 2012 6:00 AM - 9:00 PM
Sun, 5 Aug, 2012 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Celebrate the art of painting outdoors, en plein air, with the region’s leading plein air artists. Like their late 19th and early 20th century counterparts, contemporary plein air artists work on location to capture the atmosphere of the moment, including the ever-changing colors, light, and shadows. This event brings together dozens of artists to create new works and exhibit them in the Museum’s front yard by turning the South Park Blocks into a lively outdoor studio.

On Sunday, wander the Museum courtyard to meet the artists and see a selection of works made the day before. Take advantage of this opportunity and bring a work of art home with you.

The Oregon Invitational Plein Air weekend is sponsored by Gamblin Artists Colors and Oregon Coast Bank.

  1. Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer,
