Morning Hunt at Adams Farm by 2013 1st place winner Brad Allen of Walpole, MA

Welcome to the third annual Plein Air Paint Out, a juried competition benefitting Adams Farm.

Some History

After painting October at Adams Farm (pictured below), I decided to donate it to the Friends of Adams Farm (FOAF) who raffled it off to raise money for the maintenance and enhancement of the Farm.  During our conversations, I was told that the FOAF had always wanted to sponsor an event for artists, so I volunteered to organize this Paint Out.

October at Adams Farm
2011, Oil on Linen
9 x 12"
The one-day event is open to the public and artists working in all painting media (Oil, Pastels, Watercolor, Acrylics).  Just show up with your painting supplies, scout out a location, and start painting.  At the end of the day, we'll display all the works under the pavilion and our guest Juror will award ribbons and prize money to 1st,  2nd, and 3rd Place.  There will also be ribbons for two honorable mentions. The 1st place winner will also receive a one-year family membership to the Friends of Adams Farm.  In addition, the winning painting will be prominently featured in all promotional materials for next year's event.

September is a beautiful time of year on this bucolic farmland, so I hope you'll join us for this one-of-a-kind event.  Just click on the Dates & Registration tab to learn more and to register today.
