The first Coventry Plein Air Painting Festival is now in progress. Artists are invited to paint in and around the Town of Coventry for a juried show at Mill Brook Place in August. We invite Plein Air artists to set up their easels throughout the summer in Coventry village and town to record impressions of the beauty and history of the Town of Coventry. Submission deadline is August 1.
Come Paint & Show With Us this Summer in the Village. The festival culminates from Aug. 24 – Sept 1 with a juried exhibition.
