The Floyd Center for the Arts is welcoming artists to the county for a week-long painting extravaganza. Thirty-one artists will converge for the third Floyd Plein Air Biennial art festival. Coming from Massachusetts to South Carolina, these artists will explore the great vistas and lush hills of Floyd County.

Some local, and some graciously staying at host housing, the artists will visit Apple Ridge Farm in Copper Hill, travel along the Blue Ridge Parkway to find their favorite view and sip a fresh cup of Red Rooster Coffee, lose themselves in the vineyards of Chateau Morrisette, connect with the Healing Arts program from the Carilion Clinic Foundation on the campus of the EcoVillage and enjoy an amazing farm to table dinner with Chef Robert Obst, and discover the lively downtown of Floyd on a Friday night for their Quick Draw Competition. On Saturday, August 17th, the public is invited to a Gala Reception and Plein Air Art Sale in which visitors will get to view and purchase work created during the Floyd Plein Air Biennial. Our Juror, Brett LaGue, will choose the winners from the week and help curate an exhibit that will hang in the Floyd Center for the Arts’ Hayloft Gallery. 

Throughout the week, visitors who purchase Patron tickets will be able to join the artists at special events. On Saturday, all Patrons are welcome for a special one hour preview of the 2019 Plein Air Biennial Exhibition. This unique opportunity to purchase amazing art prior to being open to the public is sure to see some of the finest works sold.

Some portions of the week long festival are ticketed while others are not. All week patron passes for either all-access or standard are available for purchase. To purchase a pass online, visit: https://www.floydartcenter.org/events-1/plein-air-2019-tickets.
