Coming up- Yamhill Lavender Festival and Plein Air Art Show

From the 2010 Yamhill Lavender Festival, painted at Lavender Vally Farm in Hood River, OR (sold)
I have participated in the Yamhill Lavender Festival Paint-Out as an artist for the past four years, and this year I have volunteered to work on getting sponsors and donations for the prize portion of the art show.  I am happy to be helping out because I love the event so much and would love to give back some of what I have gotten out of it.  This event is absolute painting heaven.

The way it works is artists register before June 1(for discounted registration fees) to paint outdoors in the lavender fields between June 24 and July 8.  At the end of that two week period there is an art show in conjunction with the Yamhill Lavender Festival.  The art show and festival are held in Yamhill, which is about a half hour drive west of Beaverton (south of Forest Grove).  Being a plein air show, all art is fresh off the easel, having been painted in the outdoors during the previous two weeks.

There are a wide variety of lavender farms that participate, and registered artists have access to them during the two weeks prior to the art show.  An information packet will be mailed to registered participants before the event begins.  Monies raised by the Yamhill Lavender Festival benefit local children's art programs.
