Pacific Northwest Plein Air

Pacific Northwest Plein air 2011
Pacific Northwest Plein Air takes place in one of the most beautiful and geographically diverse areas of the Pacific Northwest.
At the heart of the event is a five-day Paint-Out and Write-Out where works of art and writing are created at various outdoor locations in and around the Columbia River Gorge—the nation’s first designated National Scenic Area. Works of art will subsequently be available for viewing and sale during a month-long art show at Columbia Art Gallery.
