Details are only just beginning to emerge from Lakeside, Ohio, surrounding a tantalizing Invitational Plein Air Festival on the shores of Lake Erie in August 2018. What do we know now? Find out here.

Organizers in Lakeside, Ohio, are busy planning for what’s sure to be a fantastic plein air festival in August 2018. Twenty-four nationally known artists will be invited to paint between Sunday and Saturday (Dates TBA) in the area before choosing three of their best works for judging. There will be sponsors, collectors, and artist events throughout the week as well.  The quaint town is located near Port Clinton, across Lake Eric from the famous Kelly’s Island.

Organizers also note, “Lakeside has a Wooden Boat Society show and a plein air paint-out in July each year, which is open to painters in the area.” In August 2018, Lakeside Plein Air hopes to draw national and regional artists to the area as the city boasts a number of different cultural and entertainment events throughout the summer.
