There is a charge of $20 which includes hospitality suite. Artists may bring 1-2 guests at $10/per person. Because of the popularity of PAPB’s paint-out with critique that is run by Manny Jomok we decided to make it part of Plein Fun Fest. Registered Artists will meet at Old School Square at 9 AM and decide where to paint. Critique leaders will be available to offer assistance to those who are new to plein air. This Plein Air Paint-out allows artists the opportunity to enjoy not only painting but sharing their creativity with the public. To the viewers, this art form can be very exciting because it invites them into the creative process: the sight, sound, and even smell of the artists´ world. One of the best parts of plein air painting is the congeniality of artists. Paintings must be back by 12 noon to be part of the Silent Auction.

At 12 PM all will meet again at Old School Square Field House for an Artist Hospitality Suite. From there we will break into groups of no more than 10 for a shared art critique. And, as last year there will be a fabulous luncheon buffet for participating artists. After critique, artists will have time to tweek paintings if they wish, and frame them for hanging in the Silent Auction, but they must be completed and framed by 3-3:30. Framing is to take place on tables after table cloths are removed.

Paintings from this day may be part of the Silent Auction that concludes at the Saturday reception in the Ocean Breeze room. They are not part of the judging.

Sunday Paint the Beach for FUN

We had a great time last year painting the beach, so we are planning to do so again. Like before we will at the pavilion at the end of Atlantic Ave. There will be coffee and donuts. The city of Delray Beach does not require a permit for our paint-out that could have upwards of 50 plus plein air painters but asks us not to congregate in one place. Imagine the visual of all the plein air painters stretched out along the beach. NIrvana. This is just a painting for the shear joy of it as Delray Beach prohibits selling of anything at the beach.

“Plein Air Palm Beach’s vision is to work with plein air painters, local art groups, cultural centers and the public to support and enhance plein air painting education, events and exhibits.”  says Donna Walsh one of the founders along with Ralph Papa. PAPB’s tag line is “Tomorrow’s culture and history painted today on site.” It includes art lovers and artists at all levels that love plein air painting and it brings artists together to paint the land-, sea- and city-scapes. “We paint and document today’s landscapes that contribute to tomorrow’s history.”

 

“The aim of Plein Fun Fest is to be regional and support artists of South Florida. We want to have something that reflects our group and we want to be local. We are not interested in competing with the national plein air competition events,” Warren continues.

Delray Gets It Right! Join In Celebrating Delray Beach “Plein Fun Fest”!


Warning: Use of undefined constant user_level - assumed 'user_level' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/thericki/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ultimate-google-analytics/ultimate_ga.php on line 524

Delray Beach Gets It Right!  Despite the recent trend of banning painters from capturing the local scenes on the street in cities such as St. Augustine, Winter Park, and Barcelona, Spain, the city of Delray Beach is actively supporting plein air painters!  Delray Beach understands the difference between hucksters bothering tourists in exchange for a few coins for entertainment and the artistic endeavors of artists who are capturing their town’s history in valuable works. The Rickie Report urges everyone to join in “Plein Air Fun Fest” on February 19th-21st.   On Friday, February 19th, plein air artists are welcome to stop by the tent in Old School Square for art critiques.  On Saturday, February 20th, come and watch the artists as they paint every day scenes and bring more emphasis to the “ordinary”.  Everything will be for sale at 5pm! On Sunday, February 21st, a new generation of plein air painters take center stage with mentors Ralph Papa and members of Plein Air Palm Beach (PAPB).  Here are the details and some sneak peeks! No wonder that Delray Beach has twice won the all American City Award, and was recently named by the US News and World Report “the most fun small city” in America. This city gets it right!

PLEIN FUN FEST WEEKEND SCHEDULE

 

 

Friday, February 19th: Paint-out & Critique

There will be a Paint-out with Critique for those Artists who want to join in the FUN but not interested in competition. There is a charge of $20 which includes hospitality suite. Because of the popularity of Plein Air Palm Beach’s 1st & 3rd Tuesday paint-out with critique that is run by Manny Jomok we decided to make it part of Plein Fun Fest.

 

Registered Artists will meet at Old School Square at 9 AM and decide where to paint. Critique leaders will be available to offer assistance to those who are new to plein air. This Plein Air Paint-out allows artists the opportunity to enjoy not only painting but sharing their creativity with the public.

 

To the viewers, this art form can be very exciting because it invites them into the creative process: the sight, sound, and even smell of the artists’ world. One of the best parts of plein air painting is the congeniality of artists.

 

 

At Noon the artists will meet again at Old School Square Field House for an Artist Hospitality Suite. From there we will break into groups of no more than 10 for a shared art critique.
