Plein Air New Bern Event

May 10-16,2021: Plein air is the centuries old tradition of painting the real world directly and on site. Various mediums can be utilized depending on the artist’s preference, including oils, pastel, acrylics, and watercolors. The Plein Air New Bern event will bring twenty-eight artists from across the United States to our area to paint in their chosen mediums and unique styles, culminating in a display of wet canvases completed during the week at the New Bern Farmer’s Market, 421 S Front Street and an online virtual exhibition hosted by the Bank of the Arts of New Bern, NC. The event will also feature a Quick Paint on May 16th, allowing artists of any age or medium the opportunity to participate and potentially win prizes.
