Ligonier Valley will host a very special Winter Plein Air Paint Out this February. Over the course of February 23 through 25, more than a dozen artists will visit the Ligonier Valley. For three days, artists will paint a variety of winter scenes from local state forests, picturesque overlooks, and iconic attractions such as the beautiful Laurel Mountain Ski Resort.

Following the three days of painting, the Museum will hold an exhibition “Wet Sale” on Sunday, February 26, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with light refreshments. Open to the public free of charge, the wet sale offers an opportunity to make purchases on the freshly painted works while speaking with the artists. If you are unable to make the reception, SAMA will be retaining works for view and purchase through Sunday, March 5, 2023.

The paint out will offer $500 in cash prizes. The prizes are generously sponsored by Ligonier Valley businesses and SAMA Ligonier Auxiliary. Artists who are interested in participating in the paint out should stop by the Museum, contact or call (724)-238-6015. A $35 non-refundable registration fee is required.
