Summit Art is hosting their very first annual Plein Air Festival, a two-day, outdoor live painting event at Crestview Dairy in Lee’s Summit, and you are cordially invited to join them.

Observe some of the area’s top plein air artists at work capturing the gorgeous scenery of Crestview Dairy’s extraordinary, historic venue – over 31 acres of 100-year old trees, lush landscape, quaint buildings and lake views. The festival culminates in a Wet Paint Sale, where the artists display the work they have created during the weekend. Patrons can purchase an original painting right off the easel.

Patrons will also enjoy a very special fine art photography exhibition at The Shack featuring extraordinary images captured at the venue. Prints will be on display and for sale. The Lee’s Summit Symphony will be performing live on Saturday, Apr. 10, from 1 p to 2 p.m. at The Pavilion by the Lake. Admission and parking are free.

Artist awards are Best of Show – $1,000 and Best of Quick Paint – $200.
