Georgia Color Plein Air presented by Olmsted Arts in partnership with Glynn Visual Arts celebrates the tradition of painting outdoors and depicts the dramatic and distinct locales and landscapes of Coastal Georgia.
Propelled by the creative genius of Georgia’s most gifted plein air painters, Georgia Color is a sister event to the prestigious, Atlanta-based, Olmsted Plein Air Invitational. This four-day, St. Simons Island experience will lift up the beauty, inspiration, and heritage of the Golden Isles and Coastal Georgia in watercolors, pastels, oils and acrylics by forty Georgia Artists. Each Georgia Artist was juried and selected from a competitive pool to paint our splendid coastal terrain and unique architecture and personality in competition with one another. The result will render hundreds of paintings for sale and competition.
Members and visitors are invited to participate and enjoy the visual celebration that is Georgia Color through a series of ticketed and free events. Spectators will have many chances to see the artists at work through both planned and impromptu demonstrations.
