Plein air is a term derived from the French expression "en plein air," meaning "in the open air" and specifically refers to the act of painting outdoors. Cannon Beach's popular "Plein Air & More" arts festival is a three day event with more than forty artists, represented by Cannon Beach's art galleries, creating works of art on location throughout the town and on the beach. Many will work in the traditional and challenging method of plein air painting, while others will sculpt, create and photograph in their own unique styles, with their work showcased at gallery receptions on Friday evening. Visitors are encouraged to ask questions or just observe. Artists will also participate in a group show at the Cannon Beach Chamber Building, which opens at 10 a.m. Friday, with new work added as it is completed. A reception with light hors d'oeuvres and music will also be held at the Chamber on Saturday evening from 5-7 p.m. All events are free and will take place rain or shine.
