Connect with live art and music created in nature
while enjoying the beautiful outdoor spaces in Mansfield.
The Plein-Air Trail Mansfield is an opportunity for all to connect with artists and live art creation after over a year of absence. Local landscape painters and chamber musicians will be creating their art on the various local land trusts and outdoor spaces in Mansfield, Connecticut on Saturday, June 26th. A trail map is available on this site below. You can visit one stop along the Plein-Air Trail or all. This event is free.
The day will conclude with a "Meet-the-Artists" event and juried event at Betsy Paterson Square to see the progress of the art and connect with the artists directly, followed by a full performance of live singing by local vocal chamber ensemble, Voices of Concinnity.
What is "plein-air"?
Plein air painting is an artistic record of life filtered through the painters’ sensitivity and skills. The artists share their aesthetic visions of the beauty and uniqueness of a generous world in a continuous transformation under the ever-changing quality of light. The result is a renewed reality, filled with beauty and joy, tolerant and patient, sharing its gifts with each and every one. Through the artists’ eye, the world reveals itself as a treasure, and the people as its precious inhabitants.
