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

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.
