The Floyd Plein Air Festival 2017

Aug 14, 2017 at 12:00AM - 12:00PM
The Floyd Center for the Arts & Throughout Floyd County.

The Floyd Plein Air Festival 2017 is a new and exciting event that grew from the success of 2016’s Floyd Plein Air Crush weekend. Expanding to a week-long event, the festival will bring national and regional artists to paint the beauty of the county’s open spaces and favorite places. Partnering with The Center in this endeavor are Plein Air Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Chateau Morissette Winery, Riverstone Organic Farm, Apple Ridge Farm, and the Town of Floyd, as well as several host families and farms in and around the county.
Our mission for the festival is to bring visibility and opportunity to the artists, participating venues, and partners, while providing an inspirational, educational, and memorable experience for the patrons attending. It is our hope that the festival will not only be an annual fundraising opportunity for the Floyd Center for the Arts, but also an activity to boost the sustainability of its partner venues and hosts.
More than $3,500 in prizes will be given away to participating artists! And we are pleased to announce Valerie Craig from St. Davids, Pennsylvania, as our judge for the events.
