“Was created in plein air for the Sedona Plein Air Festival 2020- Year of the Women on a cold rainy day 30 minutes from my home in Dobbin, Texas. I painted as long as I could before I started shivering so bad I had to stop. The local postman stopped to check on me after seeing me there for hours. The rain was driving down, landing in my gear, my car, and on my pallet but it wasn’t on my panel so I  soldiered on. I was soaked through from head to toe and would take breaks sitting in my car with the seat warmer on to combat the chill.”


This work is part of the 16th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival – a festival unlike anything that we have ever done before! A first-of-its-kind, an all-woman festival, presented completely online October 24 – 31, 2020.

Each artist will be sending in work from their own diverse locations for presentation in the Arts Center’s online Gallery. At the conclusion of the festival week, well known plein air artist Lyn Boyer of Colorado will conduct an online awards ceremony.

Artists will submit new work as it is completed, accompanied by short narratives describing their selection of place and/or their creative process. Works from the festival will be available for purchase from Oct 25 – Nov 30, 2020.

Online presentations allow for rich content that could not otherwise be experienced. Art lovers will be able to immerse themselves in presentations from their favorite artists throughout the festival. From live demonstrations, to short videos created by our festival artists all across the country, to an online gallery of new works updated daily.
