Our first annual Plein Air Festival was a huge success. It was a 4-day event (Aug. 16-19, 2018), painting from Thursday thru Saturday, ending with a reception and sale on Sunday. Check out our Facebook page for photos from each day. Artists were invited to paint throughout the city of Oshkosh, with many beautiful paintings as a result.
