Not only will you watch the art be created each day, but you will also have the opportunity to purchase the art straight from the easel. Whether you are a serious buyer, or someone who simply appreciates the arts, come out for a day or stay overnight, the festival has something for everyone to enjoy. Join in one or many of the events and get to know the artists, enjoy small town hospitality and the beauty of spring in Missouri during the 16th Annual Plein Air Art Festival.

Mark your calendar for April 18 – 29, 2018 for the 16th AUGUSTA PLEIN AIR ART FESTIVAL, for artists and art lovers alike.
 
Artists: The Augusta Plein Air Art Festival provides artists with the opportunity to expand their markets, to enhance their skills, to receive recognition for their art, and to simply experience Missouri Wine Country in the company of other artists and as such it is open to artists of all levelsWorkshops will be held throughout the event, and registration is open.
 
Art Lovers: The public is invited to observe the art unfold before their eyes each day at events hosted by local businesses and neighboring communities.  Unique events will be featured each day during the festival at a variety of locations from local wineries to historic sites, with special Days in surrounding towns. Along with special events, the festival will feature a Pop-Up Art Gallery at the Harmonie-Verein/American Legion Hall for viewing art and purchases daily until 10 PM.
 
Picture the vineyards cascading with lime green foliage, the dogwoods in bloom, the bountiful colors of red buds, lilacs, tulips and irises with a lush green backdrop, and tones of brown and green making up the quilted patterns of the fields viewed from the Missouri River bluff, with each scene receiving radiant light from the sun giving each moment of the day it’s own unique beauty. This is what the plein air artists will be expressing on canvas, when The Greater Augusta Chamber of Commerce hosts the Annual Augusta Plein Air Art Festival.
 
Over 120 artists are anticipated to attend the event. The artists will be scattered about the small towns of Defiance, New Melle, and Augusta capturing the rolling hills of wine country, propped along the Missouri River bluff, fixed upon prosperous farmland, tucked along the Katy Trail and recreating historic structures on their canvas.
 
Art completed during the Annual Augusta Plein Air Art Festival will be on display and available for sale each day of the Festival at the Harmonie-Verein/American Legion Hall in Augusta as well as on location at each special event. Judging and awards and the Final Sale will take place at Mount Pleasant Estates on April 29, 2018
