Between the Bluffs Plein Air Festival is an outdoor art festival hosted each year in September in La Crosse, WI. The festival brings artists from the region to La Crosse for two weeks to paint local scenes as part of a competition. At the conclusion of the event, an awards ceremony and exhibit are held. You can also enjoy artist demonstrations. Check out their website for details.
Artists from Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa will be getting out of their studios and painting outside in our beautiful region and competing for best plein air painting. All painting will be original works created within a 15 mile radius of downtown La Crosse.
