In art, the phrase “plein air” refers to painting outdoors to capture the natural light. Being outdoors is one of the activities we can do safely during the pandemic, so an event like Plein Air Paint Out, sponsored by Louisville Visual Art, fits in perfectly with social distancing. The artists will have from 8 a.m. until the reGeneration Fair opens to the public at 2 p.m. to create their art. The family-friendly reGeneration Fair is an environmental happening with booths on the environment, such as beekeeping, fossils and ladybugs, to name a few. Paintings from the Plein Air Paint Out will be for sale. Rain or shine.
