Annual Plein Air Event

Each Spring, nature awakens. The hills and bluffs green. The pear trees blossom. The crocuses and lilacs rise out of the ground. And, in our town, the smell of oil paints and the sound of stretching canvas fills the air.


That is because each year, we celebrate the inspiration and uniqueness of Spring in Augusta with our Plein Air Art Event. Over 100 artists from all over the area gather in the towns of Augusta, Dutzow and Defiance to capture on canvass the energy and beauty that is in the open air (en plein air is French for in the open air).
