Selection Reminder: Winter Park Paint Out starts today!




April 22-28 – Winter Park Paint Out

various times and events through April 28

Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens

633 Osceola Ave., Winter Park


free, $45-$60 for garden party

At first, we assumed en plein air (French for “in the open air”) painting could be done anywhere – on a boat, on a rollercoaster, in an outhouse. (Just us?) So we were relieved to know that the 26 artists participating in this week’s Paint Out are sticking to the picturesque lakes, lush gardens and boutique-lined streets of Winter Park. The stacked lineup of landscape painters – the majority are from Florida including Winter Park’s Stephen Bach, Brenda Hofreiter and Larry Moore, with a few out-of-staters sprinkled in – paint for your viewing pleasure throughout the week literally wherever they plop their easel down. (Oh, and also at scheduled daily art demos and the Sunset “Paint-In” at Hillstone Restaurant on Wednesday, April 25). Finished pieces will be hung one-by-one as completed at the Polasek Museum, where they’ll be for sale and on display during the weeklong event’s finale, the Garden Party on Saturday, April 28. This is art in the making, people. – Aimee Vitek
