Time & Location
About the Event
[ pleyn-air; French ple-ner ]
- pertaining to a manner or style of painting developed chiefly in France in the mid-19th century, characterized by the representation of the luminous effects of natural light and atmosphere as contrasted with the artificial light and absence of the sense of air or atmosphere associated with paintings produced in the studio.

- (of a painting) having the qualities of air and natural light.
Please join us for a spectacular morning of live art, music, and a public artwork dedication outdoors in Downtown Buda. The purpose of this event is to responsibly bring the community together outdoors through art in a mindful, healing, and celebratory way.
Visual artists will set up along Main Street and paint, draw, or sculpt en plein-air! Musical artists will busk along Main Street. Cash tips are welcome!
Artwork created during the Buda Plein Air Festival will be critiqued by a panel of judges. Winning artists will have their plein-air artwork on display and for purchase in the Inspired Minds Gallery Plein Air Exhibit opening on October 9th from 4:00pm until 7:00pm!
