About the Event
On Oct. 14 – 15, artists from the River Region and beyond will bring bright eyes and creative spirits to our hometown for the 11th annual Pike Road Plein Air Paint Out, with the intention of capturing the beauty of our community in their own artistic styles. “Plein air” painting is fast paced, outside (plein air is French for “outdoors”) and focuses on the ever-changing light and colors of landscapes and scenes. As artists disperse and paint around the Town of Pike Road, please feel encouraged to stop, say hello, and observe these talented creators in action. The community is invited to explore and purchase art created during the 2022 Plein Air Paint Out at the Wet Paint Art Show and Sale from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15.
