Plein Air Painting Event

Join Douglas Land Conservancy (DLC) for our Community Plein Air Art Event 2023! It is open to all artists of any age and will be held at a conserved Open Space property.  Artists working in all media types are welcome.


DLC is pleased to announce our first Community Plein Air day on June 10, 2023 (rain date June 17). All are welcome to come and reflect on the beauty of open space through art. We will join together on a property protected by a DLC conservation easement to enjoy a day of creativity and comradery.

All work must be original and created outdoors at the approved area during the DLC event. Any subject created en plein air (in the open air vs. in studio) qualifies. Subjects will include the elements found at the location areas provided the morning of registration. Work materials will be stamped at check in before the event begins.

Winning art pieces will be on display for sale in July.
