The Plein Air Exhibit and Sale is the highlight of the festival and showcases art submitted for the Plein Air Competitions.  The show typically includes more than 200 entries in oil, pastel, watercolor, and other mixed media that have been produced during the days leading up to the show by registered artists of all levels of experience.   The exhibit is a great venue for purchasing art and seeing how the region’s rural and natural landscapes have been interpreted and captured on canvas or paper by artists from near and far.
