When Robert and Betty came to their first Door County Plein Air Festival, they had no idea what to expect, "We loved every minute," Betty recalls. "Watching the artists paint, seeing them capture the amazing Door County scenery and in the end taking home a piece that reminds us our first vacation in Door County. We haven't missed a year since!"
Painting from life and the landscape has long been a Door County tradition, and one that has endured evolving styles. The festival’s painters draw from the rich traditions of plein air painting.
