2017 Bermuda Plein Air Festival          11th - 18th     November, 2017

One week in Bermuda will inspire you for a lifetime! Presented by the Plein Air Painters of Bermuda, the BERMUDA PLEIN AIR FESTIVAL pays homage to the spirit and innovation of the great French Impressionists whose paintings were based on the belief that "you should trust your eyes" to capture the beauty that surrounds you. As with the old masters, contemporary plein air artists paint from life in the out-of-doors (en plein air), capturing moments in time that reflect the ever-changing colors, light and shadows, temperature and shifting elements.

The art form requires that artists have stamina, focus, and the ability to be completely absorbed in the work regardless of what Mother Nature is throwing at them.

There is no setting more perfect than BERMUDA -  it is truly an artist's paradise!
