Join us for an exciting new and unique event at the State Arboretum of Virginia at Blandy Experimental Farm: Plein Air at the Arboretum! We’re featuring a “Late Lunch with the Artists,” allowing ticketed patrons to lunch with nearly 100 plein air artists who have spent four days outdoors at the Arboretum painting the magnificent scenery. Own a piece of original Blandy artwork! “Late Lunch” patrons are able to select framed, wet-paint artwork before it’s available to the public later in the day. Also on tap is a fun Quick Draw competition for adults and juniors (art supplies provided), live music, and delightful food selections. Come join in on the creativity!
