Every June, Falls Church Arts hosts the Plein Air Festival Competition. Now in its 8th year, the theme of the festival is “Scenes in the City”. Since April, local artists and anyone else wishing to enter the contest have been drawing or painting on outdoor surfaces across Falls Church. Winners are selected by the Plein Air Judges except for the “Plein Air Artist’s Choice Award” chosen by the artist entrants and the “People’s Choice Award” which is awarded to the artist with the most popular painting as voted by the general public who attend the Festival. This year, the festivities are taking place in Harry Wells Park, at the corner of Little Falls and Park Avenue, on June 10th from 9am to 12pm. We encourage members of The Kensington Falls Church Community to attend the festival and join in this lovely outdoor celebration of local art.
