Artists will be painting en plein air, or in the open air, at local venues as part of the North Lake Tahoe Plein Air Open June 13 through June 18, 2016.
Participating artists will gather to paint the breathtaking scenery of North Lake Tahoe, and organized Paint-Outs will take place throughout the North Lake Tahoe for artists to gather and paint local landscapes. You may spot artists painting along the lake shore, in scenic valleys or blooming meadows. There are 25 competing artists this year.
The Artists Reception and Collectors Party on Friday, June 17 from 4-6pm, at the Tahoe Maritime Museum which is the culminating event for North Lake Tahoe Plein Air Open painters. After a week of painting the scenery of North Lake Tahoe “en plein air,” in the open air, the 25 participating artists will select their best pieces to display and compete.
The reception will host light fare and wine. Artwork on display will also be part of a juried competition for the artists with awards and prizes announced at the reception. This is the best opportunity to purchase the best artwork fresh from the field, before they become available to the public – some to the paintings will still be wet! Pre-sale tickets are $35 per person, $50 per person week of the event.
Artist registration cost is $85-$100 per artist.
Tickets can be purchased at northtahoearts.com or by calling (530) 581-2787.
