Montague Plein Air Festival
The concept of a “Plein-Air Festival” is that all of the work is made on location. Artists arrive at the paint-out location, with blank canvases, which are stamped and dated on the back. Over a few hours, they will attempt to capture the light and atmosphere of the scene around them.
Each day participants will visit a different venue setting up their easels, squeezing colors onto palettes in a celebration of the landscape of PEI.
Five spectacular paint-outs over five days are at the center of Montague Plein-Air Festival, in some of the most stunning scenery, charming villages and historic towns that Eastern PEI has to offer.
A schedule of locations will be available to the public and spectators are encouraged to come out, find the artists and watch them at work.
At the culmination of the festival, paintings will be selected for awards.
Categories include such prizes as:
Artist’s Choice, People’s Choice,and a Grand Prize Award
