SEPTEMBER 16-22

Taliesin Preservation welcomes 29 regional artists renowned for their work en plein air, for a week-long painting event on the 800-acre Taliesin estate, culminating with a Buyers’ Reception and Quick Paint Off-the-Easel for art lovers and collectors to meet and mingle with the artists and purchase paintings.

Graciously aligning with Wright’s philosophy of organic architecture, the arts, land stewardship, and education, Taliesin Plein Air is a celebration of beauty under the umbrella of Wright’s design, bringing together exceptional artists, nature enthusiasts, art collectors, Taliesin patrons, and community.

Plein air painting is a popular and interpretive approach to learning from nature – also at the root of influence for Frank Lloyd Wright. Fused with the iconic architecture at Taliesin are patchworks of organic farmland, restored prairies, intimate waterways, stunning oak trees, orchards, gardens, vineyards, and collections.

Income generated from the week-long event will directly support the artistic, cultural and educational programs that breathe life into the buildings.
