Recognized as the largest gathering of artists in Wisconsin, 150 nationally recognized and local artists will leave the comforts of their studios and spend over a week painting outside ... rain or shine.
The resulting fresh-off-the-easel paintings capture a summer moment in Ozaukee County. These are paintings of small town life, charming historical structures, favorite coffee shops, lakefront vistas, and picturesque countryside.
Unlike other plein air events, Cedarburg offers original art for everyone. More than 600 paintings are for sale in a wide range of subjects and prices.
