Prairie Fest 2015 Plein Air Paintings

En plein air  is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors, which is also called peinture sur le motif or "painting of the object(s) or what the eye actually sees". 

Local painters outdid themselves at the 10th anniversary Prairie Fest.  Many paintings went home with annual collectors, but don't feel left out!  You can still own a Tandy Hills Natural Area painting for your wall. Sales benefit ongoing conservation and education efforts.  Most of the paintings have been donated with all sales going to FOTHNA programs. Exceptions are noted where applicable. 

First come first served. Make your selections and contact us today about payments and pick-up. see details at bottom of page.

Special thanks to ALL the artists for their generous donations to Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area through sales of their art works!
