About the Event
On October 15-16, artists from the River Region and beyond will bring bright eyes and creative spirits to our hometown for the 10th annual Plein Air Paint Out, with the intention of capturing the beauty of our community in their own artistic styles. Artists include members of the Alabama Plein Air Artists and others from across the country.
- 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15: Nationally-recognized Plein Air artists Barbara Davis, Craig Reynolds, and John Guernsey will provide painting demonstrations at SweetCreek Farm Market (85 Meriwether Rd) - Stop by to meet the artists, watch them in action, and chat about what they do!
- Throughout the day on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15-16, artists will disperse around Town in search of scenes that catch their eyes. The community is welcome to observe and meet the artists as they bring their paintings to life.*
- On Saturday, Oct. 16, the community is invited to meet the artists and explore the weekend’s works during a “Wet Paint” sale from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the Pike Road Arts Center (944 Wallahatchie Rd). This evening’s event is so named because all the paintings available will have been created during the Paint Out, and some paintings may not yet be completely dry!
The annual Pike Road Plein Air Paint Out is presented by the Pike Road Arts Council, a Town of Pike Road ENHANCE initiative committee. The Pike Road Arts Center (PRAC) is located at 944 Wallahatchie Rd, under the water tower.
