Plein Air Art at Montpelier
Firnew Farm Artists’ Circle will be participating in Plein Air Art on the grounds of James Madison’s Montpelier the first Thursday of each summer month. The land and its history have been the muse of many artists, so they could not imagine a more perfect venue to continue their collaborative artwork in a socially distant fashion. Visitors to Montpelier will have the opportunity to watch artists at work as they stumble along a painter in a field or a photographer capturing nature in its glory. The artists will be at Montpelier, 11350 Constitution Highway, Montpelier Station, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To learn more, visit FirnewFarmArtistsCircle.wordpress.com or find them on Facebook. For questions, contact Trish Crowe at (540) 718-0370.
