2021 Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival Quick Draw in Goshen, NY

When: October 15, 2021 9am-11am
Where: Goshen Farmers’ Market, Goshen, NY

The Quick Draw competition sign-in is from 8:30-9:00am.  Canvases require a separate Quick Draw stamping.  Judging will take place with the help of local community members in Goshen at 11:30am.  Everyone is welcome and eligible for prizes.  We hope that you will join us at the event.

The plein air festival is in it’s 6th year. Artists from around the country will paint “en plein air” in various locations around the Hudson Valley region.  Artwork created during the festival is exhibited publicly and offered for sale at the Wallkill River School as well as online from October 16 -31.  New York’s Hudson Valley is the ideal setting for plein air painting. The area is endowed with a rich history of art and has been a popular destination for many of America’s artists for over 150 years. Artist Andrew Lattimore is the judge of the competition.

Update 11/11/21: The Quick Draw was in Goshen, NY and you could paint anywhere within the town. This is a great little town to paint as it is very picturesque. Unfortunately, I was under the impression that the artist that judges the Plein Air Festival would also be judging the Quick Draw. Instead the judges are local business people. It’s for this reason that I would not enter the Quick Draw competition in the future unless it is judged by professionals in the art field. I would, however, go up and paint in beautiful Goshen.
