The 2017 Paint Out Chadds Ford Plein Air Event, March 4

The Chadds Ford Historical Society is hosting its 9th annual Plein Air art event called Paint Out Chadds Ford on Saturday, March 4, 2017. Artists from the Mid-Atlantic region will be painting around the Chadds Ford area as well as at the Barns Brinton House, John Chads House and along Brandywine Creek.

The Society will host a special art exhibition at the CFHS Barn Visitors Center that will be open to the public on Saturday evening, March 4. From 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. there will be an “Exclusive Preview Party” where guests can view and purchase artwork made that morning. Tickets are $35 per person ($30 for Chadds Ford Historical Society members).

Admission includes heavy hors d'oeuvres and our signature cocktail plus $15 of the ticket cost can be applied towards each art purchase you make (cannot be combined). From 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. join us for “Wine & Cheese with the Artists” reception and a wet paint sale. Admission is $15 per person ($10 for Chadds Ford Historical Society members). Guests can view displays of the work just completed by the artists for the plein air event as well as other plein air paintings of the Brandywine Valley.

Please help support local artists by joining us for this fun event that steps back into time when early American illustrators and painters such as Howard Pyle, Bayard Berndt, and N.C. Wyeth were inspired by the beauty of our region and painted outdoors.
