Use your creative skills to paint a canvas to be displayed at the Des Moines Social Club. You pick up your canvas on Friday, June 21st and have the weekend to paint a scene in the Des Moines area. All of the completed works will be displayed in the show in the Viaduct Gallery. Note: There will be a small supply fee for participation. Artist Reception Tuesday 25th 5:30-6PM and Open to Public 6:00-8:00PM.

Here’s how it works:

• Register for $25 (DMSC provides canvas) or $5 (artist provides canvas)
• All skill levels are welcome!
• On June 21, artists will pick up their canvas (various sizes available, if provided by DMSC) and sign up for their location (we’ll have a list of pre-selected spots around Des Moines for you to choose from)
• Over the next 48 hours, artists will go to their selected locations and paint whatever they see.
• Artists can use any paint medium, and any subject matter within view.
• Artists will return their painted canvas to Viaduct Gallery on June 23, by 6pm
• On Tuesday, June 25, we will have a reception for our Plein Air artists and the public (Artist Reception from 5:30-6pm and a public, open house reception from 6-8pm)
• New this year - pantings will be displayed in the gallery for a week, until June 30th.
• Guests can put in a bid for paintings by making a closed, silent bid in a sealed envelope. We’ll announce the highest bidders after the show.
