Plein Air Richmond brings artists from all over the United States to Richmond for one amazing week of painting our beautiful and historic city. Plein air painting is typically done outside rather than in a studio. The term comes from the French en plein air, meaning "in the open air." Participating artists consider Plein Air Richmond to be one of the top plein air events in the country − it is helping to put Richmond on the map as an arts destination for the artists and patrons alike.

The event will take place June 19 to 25 with highlights including a ticketed collectors' preview sale and awards reception on Friday, June 23, a public art sale on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25 and a "Fast and Fresh" two-hour painting competition on Saturday, June 24 in Carytown. "Fast and Fresh" paintings can be purchased right off the easel! The wonderful art in the show will include oil paintings and watercolors in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and prices. Plein Air Richmond pieces are all created throughout the week of June 19 through 24 and daily painting locations will include The Fan, Church Hill, Monument Avenue, Rocketts Landing and more.

Brazier Gallery will be open to the public from 8 to 9 p.m. on Friday, June 23, Saturday, June 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, June 25 from noon to 5 p.m. for sales and viewing. Also, be sure to visit us in Carytown on Saturday, June 24 from 9:30 a.m. to noon for the exciting "Fast & Fresh" quick paint competition!  Twenty-five percent of proceeds from Plein Air Richmond painting sales and all ticket proceeds will support the pets in the care of the Richmond SPCA. 


Thank you to our generous Plein Air Richmond sponsors!
