Join Honorary Chair Lila McAlpin as we welcome some of America's most esteemed contemporary Impressionist painters to Atlanta. Together we will celebrate in the true spirit of plein air painting as we open with 'Meet the Artists!' A unique benefit for Olmsted Plein Air Invitational. This year, the 2018 Artists Welcome will place in the heart of our city hosted by The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, a walkable city sanctuary where art, style and ambiance converge. Surpassing all previous years, this event will offer an enchanting introduction to the week ahead.
Non-competition paintings will be available for purchase. Meet the Artists will begin at 6:00 PM. Paintings created the previous days around Georgia and metro Atlanta as well as the day's work will then be assembled for show & sale at 7:00 followed by lavish food and live music shared by the competing artists and art patrons alike.
Tickets to this exclusive event are included with sponsorship benefits enjoyed by supporters known as Friends of Olmsted Plein Air. FRIENDS will also be able to purchase additional tickets at a reduced price.
