Meet This Year's Artists

Congratulations to the artists who were accepted to this year's Wayne Art Center Plein Air Festival!


Wayne Art Center is pleased to welcome John Cosby as the juror for the 12th Annual Wayne Art Center Plein Air Festival.

What is Plein Air?

Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color and movement into their works.


Save the date for our ever-popular Collectors' Soirée and Sale on May 12, 2018. Enjoy an evening of fine art, hors d’oeuvres, open bar and live music.

Artist & Community Paint-Out

Calling all artists! Please join Wayne Art Center's nationally recognized Plein Air artists as they paint the scenery of downtown Wayne and the Wayne area on Saturday, May 12, from dawn until 1:00 pm.
