Sorry for the short notice. I’m actually not sure if it’s too late or not. But Jim Walker wants us to send him images to display on the DOAF website if we have something we want displayed along with our name. Smallish images no larger than 700 pixels on the longest side. He wanted them by the end of the day today. So… Sorry, might be too late already. But I’m posting just in case. Email the images to him.
The OVA will be well-represented at this year’s Downtown Olathe Arts Festival. Here’s a flyer telling all about the event. Hope to see you there!
Jim Walker passed this along:
Attention all artists: Registration is being accepted for artists to participate in the Plein Air Art event. Registration is free and artists are encouraged to make a donation of art work for a silent auction benefitting the Safe Harbor Prison Dog Program.
Please encourage your artist friends to participate.
Please let me know of your participation by responding to this email. I have heard that artists sometimes don’t want to participate because of the heat in August. There is a lot of shade on the property and August is the ideal time to capture the vineyard in it’s harvest glory. We also have a covered gazebo overlooking the vineyard and indoor a/c space with windows looking out to the vineyard. Artists are welcome to paint anytime during the week of the event; this includes the cool morning hours. Thank you.
Please see the specifics below. This is the information that will appear in our newsletter. I am happy to include artist names and short bios if I have the information by Monday, June 17th.
Plein Air Artists in the Vineyard
Holy-Field Vineyard & Winery
Saturday, August 10 • 11am-5pm
Come experience the vineyard beauty of ripening grapes!
Stroll the vineyard and watch the rich colors burst forth in nature … and on canvas at the Plein Air Art Stroll.
The lush Holy-Field Vineyard will be dotted with summer’s ‘splashes of color’ and one of Mother
Nature’s most picturesque settings will again serve as the perfect canvas for local artists. Come and witness artists completing their pieces in the tradition of Plein Air (outdoors), capturing the nuances of natural light in their work.The artists will be painting throughout the vineyard and you will have the opportunity to walk the vineyard and visit with the artists. (Note: artists will be painting in the vineyard the week before the event, Aug. 4-9).
Paint an Experience You’ll Treasure!
Complete your Plein Air experience with the sights, and tastes of Holy-Field wines. Artists will be showing & selling their work on the Vineyard stage. You will also have the opportunity to vote for the “People’s Choice Award” and honor one of the artists. Why not make a day of it?
The OVA is now Exhibiting at the First Art Gallery of Olathe and will be through Friday, June 7th.
This is how it looked when I dropped off my stuff Friday morning. Not everything was up yet.
