Celebrate With 5th Annual Plein Fun Fest In Delray Beach From January 31 Through February 2. Discover New Plein Air Artists And Fabulous Locations To Paint.

Plein Fun Fest is celebrating its 5th year in Delray Beach. This “Hidden Gem” features great artists who live and work in Palm Beach and Broward counties.  Come watch juried artists paint on the streets of fabulous, action-packed Delray Beach on January 31-February 2, 2020. Last year Plein Fun Fest raised over $5,000 at the silent auction and more than $8,000 for the week. The mission of Plein Fun Fest is to be a regional art event to support artists of South Florida.  The competition is sponsored jointly by Plein Air Palm Beach (PAPB) and Old School Square.  The events are free and open to the public, as viewers find themselves immersed in the sights, sounds, and even smells of these artists’ world.  Artwork will be for sale, so mark your calendars!  The Rickie Report shares the details here.

On Saturday, February 1, the public can wander around the streets of Delray any time between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm to see more than 50 artists capturing the hidden gem that is Delray Beach. Our artists love to have an audience and will be happy to share what they are doing with you. 

 

 

The paintings from Plein Fun Fest 2020 will be featured in a silent auction beginning on Friday night January 31 at 6:30 pm and all-day Saturday until 4:00 pm at Old School Square in Delray Beach. Last year Plein Fun Fest raised over $5,000 at the silent auction and more than $8,000 for the week. 

 

 

The Plein Fun Fest competition is sponsored jointly by Plein Air Palm Beach (PAPB) and Old School Square. “The aim of Plein Fun Fest is to be a regional art event to 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,” says publicity chair, Donna Walsh.

About the National League of American Pen Women:

Since its founding in 1897 by Marian Longfellow O’Donoghue, Henry Longfellow’s niece, the League seeks to create progression and advancement in visual arts, literary work, and musical composition. As the oldest and largest women’s arts organization, members share their creativity in a number of ways, including workshops, exhibitions, discussion groups, performances, demonstrations and lectures, fostering networking and friendships among members, while maintaining a high, broad standard of work, effort and strength that comes from the union. Each year the Fort Lauderdale Branch awards three $1,000 scholarships to a high school senior woman who has been accepted and enrolled as a full-time student at an accredited college, university or technical school.
