2021 Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival Exhibit
October 16 - December 31| Free
An exhibit of over 100 works of art created during the sixth annual, 2021 Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival between October 11, 2021 and October 15, 2021.
During the festival, fifty previously accepted juried artists are provided with lists of scenic sites and venues throughout the region, where they are welcome to set up their easels and paint. Artists begin with blank canvases, which are stamped by the HVPF committee, thus insuring that the works ultimately submitted to the Juror of Awards have indeed been accomplished during the allotted time.
A particularly popular and highly anticipated feature of the HVPF is the Quick Draw competition, where all participants converge at one site on the last day of the festival to paint for a specified amount of time. The 2021 location is expected to be in and around the Farmers Market in Goshen NY and will be on Friday, October 15 from 8:30 am to Noon. The general pubic is welcome to participate in the Quick Draw event if they bring their own supplies. Advance registration and a nominal fee are required.
Artwork created during the festival will be exhibited publicly (and available for sale) at the Wallkill River School and Gallery during regularly scheduled gallery hours from October 16-31, 2021 and then online or by appointment until December 31, 2021.
