Paint Kerrville Comes to KACC

Starting Fresh this fall with a Plein Air event in Kerrville, Outdoor Painters Society is happy to pair up with Kerr Arts & Cultural Center to begin an annual event that should be on any art lover’s bucket list.  For this 4-day plein air painting competition Outdoor Painters Society will bring in a field of 50 talented Texas artists.  They will paint within the constraints of time, sunlight, outdoor elements, and energy-whatever conditions may be.  On the last day, Saturday September 25th, the public will be welcomed into the Kerr Arts & Cultural Center to see the results while the paintings are very fresh. 

“We are looking forward to these artists invading our town,” says KACC Director Lanza Teague, “to capture our area in it’s early fall glory on canvas.  To bring in this group of fresh eyes to Kerrville is an honor and privilege.  I cannot wait to see the art that is produced in this new 4-day event we are aptly naming Paint Kerrville.  We believe that the beauty of our county is second to none.  What a better way to share with each other than to see it through an artist’s eyes. “

On Friday evening KACC supporters and ticket holders will get the first chance to view and shop the collection (tax free) of fresh artwork, with a percentage of the proceeds supporting KACC programs. The exhibition will then be open to the public Saturday Sept. 25th.  Also on Saturday morning, a treat for spectators, art collectors, students, and families to interact and watch the plein air artists speedily produce a local piece during the Saturday Quick Paint Competition. 

There is still time for organizations or individuals to be a part of the fun and become sponsor of Paint Kerrville and there are great perks that come with the sponsorship, including free admission to the preview reception.
