summit art plein air festival

Summit Art’s newest annual signature event happens April 10-11, 2021

This is a rain or shine event!

Join us at our very first Plein Air Festival! Summit Art invites plein air artists to capture the gorgeous scenery of Crestview Dairy’s extraordinary, historic venue – over 31 acres of 100 year old trees, lush landscape, quaint buildings and lake views.

Compete for prizes including BEST OF SHOW $1,000 and BEST OF QUICK PAINT $200!

Two days of painting in the fresh outdoors! Enjoy the peaceful vistas and observe scenes in their natural light. Painting plein air engages all the senses, as you are making a first-class memory. Bring new insights into your creative process.

Let us celebrate you and the art you have created at this event by holding a Wet Paint Exhibition and Sale in the Pavilion Tent next to the beautifully restored Dairy Barn, including a wine and cheese Awards Reception.

Enjoy a very special fine art photography exhibition at The Shack, next to the Pavilion Tent and Dairy Barn, featuring extraordinary images captured at the venue in October. Prints will be on display and for sale.

The Lee’s Summit Symphony will be performing live on Saturday, April 10, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm at The Pavilion by the Lake.
