ART IS IN THE AIR EN PLEIN AIR ARTS FESTIVAL

What is Art is in the Air?

On the weekend of June 25-27, 2021, The Heart of Brevard in partnership with The Transylvania Community Arts Council (TCArts) will be hosting a weekend of the arts in downtown Brevard: Art is in the Air: A Weekend of En Plein Air in Downtown Brevard.
Art is in the Air will celebrate our downtown by welcoming 25 artists to its heart to practice their craft. Each artist will be stationed throughout downtown Brevard and will be drawing or painting en plein air. At the end of the weekend, the works they create will be sold at the event’s Wet Paint Show and Sale to support Heart of Brevard and TCArts.

I’m an en plein air artist, how can I participate?

Update: Art is in the Air 2021 is Full

We will be accepting up to 25 artists on a first come first serve basis. Painting sites will be throughout the downtown district and painters will be able to choose their sites from a listing of pre-approved locations.

The event will be hosted safely and with all social distancing protocols in place to ensure the health and well being of our artists, volunteers and art loving customers.

Upon signing up, registrants will receive an immediate email confirming they’ve completed their applications and a second email confirming their spots within a week of their application submission.
