PAPSE (Plein Air Painters of the Southeast) Paint Out: September 23-24, 2022

Greetings Everyone!

Last year, we were not able to celebrate our long awaited 20th Anniversary. So!!! We are working on the first big show for you that we have had in years! Hurray!

Leiper’s Creek Gallery will now be celebrating it’s 21st Anniversary and we will be presenting you with your favorite event. Please read on for a better understanding of what is planned for you and let us know if you have questions.

On Monday the 19th of September we will welcome the arrival of 25 highly acclaimed painters from all over the Southeast. After gathering to visit, “talk shop”, and have a meal together, these artists will prepare for a solid week of painting.

Painting ‘en plein air (open air), they will be seeking out beautiful locations all around Leiper’s Fork and Franklin to freshly capture those moments on their canvases. Each artist will exhibit 3-5 paintings.

There will be sightings of painters all around that week, but the opening of the Porch Show and sale of these works begins FRIDAY THE 23rd AT 4:00pm with live music and refreshments, then Peter Trippi speaks at 7:00pm (keep reading for details).

ON SATURDAY 10:00am-5:00pm, the show continues all day! You can meet the artists and wander from easel to easel as they paint in the village.

Over 100 of their paintings will be for sale on the walls of the porch and the entire building. They will be framed and ready to go, but you only have these two days to pick your favorite! This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire paintings from the most celebrated and distinguished painters of the southeast.

BONUS! At 7:00 pm on opening night, we are especially proud to offer another extraordinary opportunity that will deepen your experience. PETER TRIPPI, Editor-in-Chief of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine, will be with us from New York. He will be sharing his expertise with a slide show at the Lawnchair Theatre behind the gallery. Peter will be speaking on how to start a collection, especially one focused on contemporary landscape paintings and with emphasis on preservation.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
