Fifty artists from all over the United States will once again compete in the second annual Bucks County Plein Air Festival from June 5-11, 2017 to produce art from life (as opposed to in the studio). The juried show awards $15,000 in awards and prizes and culminates in two signature events, Bucks County Community College's Tyler Tasting Party on June 9 and a public festival on June 10 & 11. The organizing committee wishes to extend its deep appreciation to the artists, art patrons, hosts and sponsors, and countless volunteers who allow us to welcome some of the country's most accomplished artists to vibrant and historic Bucks County.
