About 9th Annual Quinte en Plein Air

Leave your studio behind to paint and showcase your work outdoors!

The 9th annual Quinte en Plein Air Festival is a four-day event where artists leave their studios behind to paint and showcase their work outdoors. Artists have the opportunity to capture the beautiful images of historic downtown Belleville, the shores of the Bay of Quinte, the famous ‘Old East Hill,’ the Moira River, and numerous other painting locations in the Quinte region.

This event is a juried competition open to artists from anywhere in the world, working in various mediums such as: watercolour, acrylic, soft pastel, and oil. Wondering if your medium is included? Contact us by email and we’ll let you know!

We invite you to join us on this special weekend and participate in our unique one-of-a kind-event, celebrating Quinte en Plein Air Festival!

More prizes and events are being planned, including en Plein Air demos, paint off and painting events for the whole family…stayed tuned!
