2:30 pm - 6:30 pm: Premier Artist Paint Out

Welcome Visitors: Defiance Ridge Vineyards will host the award winning artists from the previous five years of Augusta Plein Air. Is your favorite artist among them? Participating artists are listed on our Meet the Artists page. The public is invited to observe these artists as they capture the light, shadows, and beauty of spring at Defiance Ridge Vineyards.

This paint out will begin at 2:30 PM, with judging at 6:30 PM. Art will be for sale immediately following the judging. Come for an afternoon lunch, observe the art as it develops, and then celebrate with the winner as the award is announced or make your reservations for supper served from an ala carte menu, 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, and browse the completed art. Reservations for supper are required.
