2020 Festival Schedule

The Wayne Plein Air Festival will be structured as originally planned but at a time when public health concerns are behind us and our area is ablaze with fall color.

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.
