On July 16 the City of Bedford is sponsoring a special event, the Plein Air Art Festival and Classic Car Show—sponsored by the City of Bedford and Ohio Plein Air Society, the Rotary Club of Bedford and Old Time Auto—to be held on the Commons from 11AM to 7PM.
You are invited to join with the artists from the Ohio Plein Air Society to gather on the Commons to paint (as you know, Plein Air means painting outdoors.) Their subject matter will be the historic buildings, monuments, gardens, or depot on the Commons. Some may even choose to go the Viaduct Park and paint the water falls. All of this will take place between 11AM to 3PM From 3PM to 7PM there will be a live band, food vendors, beer and wine tasting, classic cars on display and the judging of the art. First, second, and third prizes ($300, $200, $100) will be awarded to the artist with the most outstanding work. In addition, there will be a “wet paint” sale. Artists will have an opportunity to sell the work they just painted or previous work that they have.
Artists will bring their own easels, paint and canvas and umbrella if needed. Each can choose their own “painting spot”. There is no registration fee in order to participate. This should be a lot of fun. People love to watch an artist at work. You do not need to be a member of the Plein Air Society. Respond to Joyce Daunch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
