Coventry Arts Guild

To celebrate the town and the talented artists in the region, the Coventry Arts Guild is sponsoring a summer long Plein Air Painting Festival. Area artists are invited to paint in and around the town of Coventry and submit works for a juried show to be held in August. The festival began on April 13 as part of the spring Daffodil Daze in Coventry Village and will continue until the opening of the Plein Air exhibition on August 24.

The Plein Air movement of revolves around the concept of emerging from an enclosed studio andpainting outside in natural light and in the open area. Artists are invited to set up their easels throughout the summer in the recently renovated historic Coventry Village and throughout the town to artistically records impressions of the landscape and historic scenic areas in the Town of Coventry. The festival will culminate on August 24 with a juried exhibition, awards and reception at the Mill Brook Place during the Coventry Village Arts on Main event. The Coventry Arts Guild is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2016 by artists, writers, performers and community members in and around the town of Coventry. This festival and exhibition is part of the larger Arts on Main event and the fourth annual summer arts event organized by the Guild.
