PLEIN AIR or a live outdoor painting competition. Artists select a landscape, downtown building or other outdoor location within ½ mile of the Wabeno Band Shell in the heart of town.  That’s where they paint and visitors can view the action! The painting begins anytime between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. Each artist may submit up to three Plein Air paintings. Guest art judges will award cash prizes and ribbons. Framed, ready-to-hang paintings will be sold at the artist’s selected price during the “buy it now” period 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the WAM Fest Art Gallery.
