The Blowing Rock Plein Air Festival is a four-day plein air painting event. It takes place in the beautiful mountainous area surrounding the town of Blowing Rock in western North Carolina. Its aim is to bring painters together from around the world to paint outside in the fresh air while getting to know each other and sharing their work. The event prompts applicants to explore the unique Blowing Rock architecture, spectacular Blue Ridge Mountain views, and overall Appalachian feel of one of the most scenic areas in the country.
After four days of painting "en plein air," painters are invited to display their completed works at the "Wet Paint" Art Show & Sale on Saturday afternoon, August 21st. Collectors and the public are invited to attend this impressive display of Plein Air paintings to both view and purchase the unique works that highlight the incredible beauty of the High Country.
All submitted art to the art show will be entered into a judged plein air painting competition. Awards will be given in two categories, Registered and Emerging Artists.

Exercises in movement and balance guide participants to maintain and improve balance, think creatively, and build community through social engagement. This class is open to all levels of ability - even those who remain seated throughout.
Tuesdays at 10am at the Litchfield Community Center, Litchfield, CT
Participants explore movement and memories from home in this online creative movement class for seniors. The class begins with a seated warm up and progresses to standing. Modifications will be provided for those who want to remain seated for the class. We will explore poems and memories through movement. Participants will experience an increase in mobility and range of motion though safe and supported movement activities. Though we are apart we can still move together and build community. No prior experience is necessary. Please join us!
This class will take place on Zoom. Registered participants will receive a link to the virtual classroom 24 hours prior to the first class.
