The New Hope Chamber of Commerce and VisitNewHope are pleased to be a supporting sponsor of the 2017 Bucks County Plein Air Festival. Organized by the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce, this year the festival runs from June 5th-11th. The juried show awards $15,000 in awards and prizes and culminates in two signature events, Bucks County Community College's Tyler Tasting Party on June 9 and a public festival on June 10 & 11.
This year, New Hope will be a featured destination for the artists on June 7th. The town will be full of artists using the canal, river, bridge, and streetscapes as their inspiration. These artists have been invited from all over the United States to enter this annual competition to produce art from life (as opposed to in the studio). The organizing committee is excited to welcome some of the country's most accomplished artists to vibrant and historic Bucks County.
If you would like to host an artist for the week (and receive an artist paining as a memento of the experience), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Come out and see some amazing gallery shows as well as special LGBT historical exhibits. The walk runs through Pride Festival from Mat 14th -21st.
