The Al­bin Po­lasek Mu­seum & Sculp­ture Gar­den will be free to the pub­lic dur­ing the 11th an­nual Win­ter Park Paint Out, April 21 through 27. Twenty-five ac­claimed plein air artists will paint live at the Po­lasek Mu­seum and fa­vorite Win­ter Park and Or­lando lo­ca­tions.

Art lovers are in­vited to watch the artists work, view re­cently com­pletely works in the Po­lasek’s “wet room” gallery and on­line daily, and at­tend free paint­ing demos through­out the week. Art­work cre­ated dur­ing the Win­ter Park Paint Out will be avail­able for pur­chase with a por­tion of the pro­ceeds go­ing to sup­port the preser­va­tion, main­te­nance and op­er­a­tions of the mu­seum. This is a ju­ried art fes­ti­val with beloved Flor­ida artists and ex­cep­tional out-of-state par­tic­i­pants, in­clud­ing Mor­gan Sa­muel Price, Don Sondag and Matthew Cor­nell.

Ten free, two-hour in­struc­tional demos will take place dur­ing the week­long event, with di­verse top­ics rang­ing from cloud study cour­ses to how to cap­ture mov­ing ob­jects. A high­light of the week is the Sun­set Paint-In on Lake Mait­land, in which the pub­lic is wel­come to watch the magic un­fold as artists race to catch the color of the sun­set. The fes­ti­val closes with the Gar­den Party on Sat­ur­day, April 27, from

6 to 9 p.m., at the mu­seum. At this tick­eted party, guests can meet the artists, pur­chase their work and see the en­tire ex­hi­bi­tion of more than 200 freshly cre­ated paint­ings while en­joy­ing food and com­pany.

Paint­ings are also posted on­line in real-time as they are fin­ished so col­lec­tors any­where can fol­low the event and pur­chase the works.

“I en­cour­age out-of-state vis­i­tors to stay the week and im­merse them­selves in the art of plein air as only our lush Flor­ida set­ting can host. Fall in love with charm­ing, up­scale Win­ter Park through our iconic live oaks heavy with hang­ing moss, eclec­tic ur­ban sky­lines, bustling café scenes and mean­ing­ful eco­log­i­cal gems.”
