Plein Air Workshop

April 25 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

Join us Sunday, April 25 for the 7th Annual Plein Air Event sponsored by
the Merrill Linn Conservancy, the Lewisburg Arts Council, and the Lewisburg
Artists’ Guild.
What is plein air? A drawing or painting done outdoors, rather than in a
studio. The French term en plein air translates to ‘in the open air.’ The
goal of this event is to preserve, with our artwork, a present moment at
various Linn Conservancy sites. In sharing our work, we seek to build a
community of artists and citizens passionate about the preservation of
these sites for future generations.
Workshop from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. with artist David McSween, at the
Dale-Engle-Walker property,1471 Strawbridge Rd., Lewisburg. Registration
required. Maximum: 20 participants. Register at
http://lewisburgartscouncil.com/festival/#workshops
Artists can attend the workshop and then draw or paint, or go straight to
one of the four Linn Conservancy sites, which will be available to artists
through May 2:
Dale-Engle-Walker House, 1471 Strawbridge Road, Lewisburg
Koons property, North 4th Street, Mifflinburg PA 17844, at the historic
Hassenplug Covered Bridge
4:00 to 5:00 p.m. – you are invited to return to the Dale-Engle-Walker
House to share and view art created during the day even if unfinished.
Artists have the opportunity to display their artwork online from Monday,
May 10 through Friday, June 11, 2021.
Any work done during the Plein Air Event on April 25 and through May 2 at
any of the four Linn Conservancy protected sites: the DEW property, the
