This summer will see the second Plein Air Art Festival to be held in Wexford on Ireland’s south east coast under the title of ‘Art in the Open.’ It will take place over the August bank holiday weekend from Friday 31st July to Sunday 2nd August followed by an exhibition on the 3rd and 4th August. It is the brainchild of Tony Robinson of the Pigyard Gallery together with a committed group of painters from the Wexford area and last years event was a huge success attracting painters not only from all over Ireland but other parts of the world. This year’s festival promises to be another great success with several other art events taking place and an exhibition of all work completed during the weekend.
