The Plein Air Invitational and Competition is held in conjunction with Ventura’s 2017 Art Walk held Saturday and Sunday, October 7th and 8th.  We are excited to announce that this year a percentage of sales are donated towards Youth Art enrichment in our county. Our first two years were very successful, with exceptional quality art and many sales. Our artists keep coming back as they enjoy the benefits of painting Ventura scenes and our event offerings. Artists’ even paint live for a two hour Quick Draw Competition and judged by the public!
