2017 Plein Air West Reading
In the Heart of Art on the Avenue, West Reading, PA
June 17, 2017
A vibrant downtown abounding in sidewalk cafes and boutique shops. A spectacular array of architecture, from quaint front porches to characterful alleys to behemoth testaments to an industrial heyday. The verdant banks of the Schuylkill River, the natural splendor of the museum park.
The borough of West Reading is only 1.5 sq. miles, but from an artist’s perspective, it is a world of possibilities. And during the June 17 “Art on the Avenue” festival, thousands of visitors will see it all through artistic eyes as dozens of painters and illustrators–professional, student and amateur–showcase their views of the borough in the second annual Plein Air West Reading.
Also plan on seeing the live painting demo by nationally renowned plein air artist Michele Byrne!
