— 3 Days – Aug 13, 14, 15 —
See you next year… due to staffing and pandemic concerns we will see you next year!
Join us this weekend to watch talented painters create masterpieces in the “Open Air”. Artists will be set up throughout the site to capture images of our heritage buildings, farm life, or landscape. Come and see the artists as their paintings develop on Friday and Saturday! All completed paintings will be displayed for the public on Sunday.
During the competition, rain or shine, artists will be painting around the Historic Site. Artists will capture breath-taking historic vistas, farm equipment, historic buildings, lush gardens & orchards, delightful farm animals, and the surrounding mountains of our uniquely beautiful region.
Winners of the People’s Choice will be announced Sunday afternoon. The sale of paintings will occur throughout the afternoon on Sunday until 4 pm.
