This incredible event takes place October 18-25, 2015! The 10th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival is presented by Sedona Arts Center, with 30 award winning artists, who have been INVITED to participate. Plein Air artists paint out-of-doors, “capturing moments in time that reflect the ever-changing colors, light and shadows, temperature and shifting elements. The art form requires that artists have stamina, focus, and the ability to be completely absorbed in the work regardless of what Mother Nature is throwing at them.”
And where else would artists find such unique beauty, such amazing landscapes? Only in Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. The invited artists are coming from all over the United States, including Dawn Sutherland (Sedona and Flagstaff’s own!) They will spend eight days painting “en plein air” sharing their talent and experiences with this challenging art form.
There are numerous events, including Main Street Paint Out, Wine and Art Tour at Page Spring Cellars, plus special en plein air events all week long!
