Wayne Art Center 14th Annual Plein Air Festival & Exhibition

May 15 – June 25, 2022
Davenport, Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith and Vidinghoff Galleries

The 14th Annual Wayne Art Center Plein Air Festival kicked off Monday, May 9, 2022, with the arrival of 31 juried, nationally recognized and emerging artists who came to Wayne, Pennsylvania to capture the cool atmosphere and lush greens of spring in the Delaware Valley. Traveling from location to location over the course of five days, artists swiftly paint “en plein air” (French for open air), creating a trove of work unimaginable to most. As one of the premier plein air events in the country, Wayne Art Center’s Plein Air Festival offers artists the unique opportunity to showcase work created during the festival in spacious, light-filled galleries during an exhibition that hangs until the end of June.

This year’s juror, Kathryn Stats, joined Wayne Art Center from Sandy, Utah to present $10,000 in awards to this year’s plein air artists.
