August 1 - August 5, 2023

Red Bird Sylvania is pleased to bring this time-honored painting practice to our community.
Picturesque Sylvania offers the artist many landscape and architectural options including inclusive and accessible residential and commercial areas all conveniently nestled between two park systems including a river trail and a historical village. All Festival activities and pre-festival workshops are located within walkable areas. Downtown Sylvania boasts ample parking and is a short distance from US-23 and I-475 near the Ohio and Michigan line within the Oak Openings region.
In early summer, prior to the festival, join in the fun by taking an exciting workshop where you can try your hand at Plein Air painting at Fuller Art House, The Art Supply Depo, Sylvania Senior Center, The Ability Center, or Create Sylvania.
During the festival meet and mingle with the Plein Air artists painting our picturesque city from August 1st through the 3rd. Participate in public workshops August 2nd-5th. And finally, be sure to experience the full magic of the Sylvania Plein Air Festival by attending the opening exhibition of Plein Air paintings at Hudson Gallery, Fuller Art House, and The Art Supply Depo on Friday and Saturday August 4th and 5th. Artists works will remain up through August 16th.

It is our mission at Red Bird Sylvania to bring you the best in arts and inclusive culture. We appreciate your willingness to join us on our journey to delight and inspire those in the Sylvania, Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan area.
