Fresh Paint – Catiri’s 10th annual Plein Air Event

September 1, 2017 - September 3, 2017

Plein air, a French word, literally translates as ‘open air’, and is defined as painting or drawing done outside, in the open air. Over 100 years ago, artists made the move from the studio, to painting outdoors en plein air. Artists sketched the landscape in paint to bring forth its full light and color. These works are taken directly from nature, and infused with a feeling of the open air.

FRESH PAINT—A live interpretation of Iowa through the eyes of artists, in the beautiful surroundings of the Amana Colonies. This is an educational experience of seeing the art in process, as well as the appreciation of Iowa through the eyes of the artist capturing the moment. This is the 10th plein air event in the Amana Colonies, held annually on Labor Day weekend.

Just another reason to come visit the Amana Colonies and stay at Die Heimat Country Inn.
