Hosted by the Viaducat Gallery and Sponsored by Visionary Services, Inc. The Plein Air painting event is open to artists of all skill level. On Friday June 15th artists may pick up a canvas from the Viaduct Gallery or chose to use their own. Completed canvases need to be returned within 48 hours so the gallery show can be hung on Sunday night June 17th.

Viaduct Gallery, Visionary Services, and the Des Moines Social Club are proud to support local artists and we are looking forward to another great event in 2018.
In 2017 - Local artist Ben Schuh participated in the Pein Air painting event and created this wonderful interpretation of the Nomad sculpture in the Pappajohn Sculpture Park.
