Plein Art Show
2018 update: there will be no Plein Air event this year, 2018, unfortunately. Hopefully the Los Gatos Morning Rotary will bring it back in 2019. It has been a great event in the past!
Old info from 2017 is below
The Plein Art Show in Los Gatos returns Saturday June 17 2017 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Los Gatos Town Plaza (free admission), with a special VIP event the evening before. It’s both an art exhibit and art sale that benefits local charities, mostly youth. Events really begin on Tuesday the 13th with the arrival of artists in town. There will be painting happening in the days leading up to the show which will be displayed and sold over the weekend.
What is Plein Air? Plein Air is a French phrase which refers to the way of painting in the open air, which was especially popular in the 19th century with many impressionists. There will be dozens of artists coming to town and over 100 pieces of art on display (and to purchase). Also found here will be wine tasting, music, and mini art sessions for kids.
Artists Paint on Location June 14th through June 16th
VIP Artists Reception and Silent Auction $135
Friday, June 16th, 6:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Dio Deka, Hotel Los Gatos

The artists will be present (and so will food and wine). It promises to be a fun time!
