Artists from across the region will be setting up easels along the streets and byways of Sandwich to paint or draw their favorite scene and to share the experience with the public.
"Plein Air 2018 is the second annual Plein Air event sponsored by the Sandwich Arts Alliance taking place Friday, August 3rd from 9 am to 1 pm. Artists will be painting or sketching "en plein air" (outside) at a location in town of their own choosing.
Dianna Benson, Plein Air event manager said, "It's a wonderful chance to see our artists at work in beautiful Sandwich settings and to support our local artists.”
To help the public find and identify the artists, they’ll be wearing orange hats, and a “location map” can be found at the Sandwich Arts Alliance website, www.sandwicharts alliance.org.
“What really makes this event so much fun is the evening cocktail party at the Drunken Seal with a chance to bid and take home an original painting”, added Benson.
From 5-7 pm, the same day, the public is invited to a cocktail party and silent auction at The Drunken Seal Restaurant where they can view the finished artwork, meet the artists, and if they want, bid on some beautiful art.
The entire day is meant to be casual, fun and most of all, to unite the public and the art community here in Sandwich and on Cape Cod.
