Paint Cedarburg: a Plein Air Painting Event & Exhibit

June 5, 2021 - June 12, 2021

Says artist Tom Nachreiner of Delafield: "I paint to capture the essence of a moment in time, celebrating the freshness of oil paint, in aggressive, confident brushwork, trying not to fuss over the small detail, rather to capture primarily the form, mood & light, with a strong & dynamic design I instinctively build into each composition."

Event Date Detail

Cedarburg Artists Guild will host the 20th annual Paint Cedarburg: a Plein Air Painting Event. 150 plein air artists will roam our charming city capturing your favorite historical structures, favorite coffee shops, and picturesque countryside with oils, watercolors, and pastels. Recognized as the largest gathering of artists in Wisconsin, these nationally recognized and local artists will leave the comforts of their studios and spend 5 days painting outside... rain or shine. The public is encouraged to interact with the artists as they paint or simply marvel at their creativity.

Plein Air – a French expression meaning “in the open air”— describes the practice of artists painting outdoors with the subject directly in view rather than in a studio. Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color and movement into their works.
