Virginia Highlands Festival

Plein Air Abingdon Festival

October 5 – 7

A three-day painting event now celebrating its 8th year.
Not only is this an artists’ competition with cash prizes, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity for the public
to witness creative action as artists remove the confinement of their studios’ four walls and paint in the open,
drawing inspiration from the beautiful scenery in Abingdon, Virginia.
