Cedarburg Artists Guild will host the 19th annual Paint Cedarburg event, June 1–8. Recognized as the largest gathering of artists in Wisconsin, 150 nationally recognized and local artists leave the comforts of their homes to spend a week painting outside…rain or shine. Plein Air, a French term meaning “in the open air,” describes art works painted outside with the subject directly in view rather than in a studio. Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color, and movement into their works.
