Our 2023 Coastal VA Plein Air Farewell Event take place on Wednesday, April 19 through Sunday, April 23 in Norfolk, Virginia.
Join us! You’ll enjoy this popular arts event that brings local, regional, and nationally known plein air artists to paint “en plein air” throughout our coastal community. You’ll enjoy seeing the scores of beautiful, original paintings that are created during the week. Plan to purchase one (or more) for yourself, all the while supporting public art and education in Ocean View.
