Plein Air Event September  - 4 September 2022

PLEIN AIR EVENT 2022 - RESULTS & GALLERY

It was delightful to see all the artists being creative in the stunning ribbon of parks at the heart of Leamington Spa. We had a fantastic range of artworks produced from painting and drawing to glasswork and printing to collage, metalwork and embroidery. The public were really engaged in seeing the art in action and chatting to the artists. It was also wonderful to see the kids producing their own nature inspired print both to take home and be included in the collective piece.

The panel of judges - which included the High Sherriff of Warwickshire and Andrew Davies, the renowned playwright and patron of WOS, alongside representatives from our sponsor - had a tough job deciding from the many wonderful pieces produced.
