Welcome!

The Dexter Arts, Culture & heritage Committee is pleased to host the 3rd Annual Paint Dexter Plein Air Festival in Dexter, Michigan, August 17-22, 2015. Situated in the picturesque City of Dexter, this quaint town offers the outdoor painter numerous charming subjects from which to draw inspiration, including parks, meadows, rivers, wetlandds, wildlife, historical landmarks and architecture.

Activities and finished artwork will be on display in Monument Park under a large canopy tent. The Dexter ACH Committee will be hosting an open artist reception on Tuesday, August 18, from 6-8pm at Terry B’s Restaurant in Dexter. Awards presentation will be on Friday, August 21, at 5:30pm.

Our goal is to assemble the finest display of Plein Air paintings by local and regional artists. The focus of the judging process will be to select painting s that show the highest quality of craftsmanship, color, composition, and emphasizing diversity in the representational style and subject matter. Eligible artists must be at least 18 years old.
