As Plein Air KC continues to expand, so do our Quick Paints! In 2018, we are expanding to other great neighboring parks in Kansas City.
Sunday, May 6th will be a family-friendly day in Roanoke Park where patrons can come and watch over 60 artists transform blank canvases to beautiful works of art depicting Roanoke Park. Monk's Roast Beef will be serving food from their Food Truck throughout the evening for artists and patrons to enjoy. Come hungry!!!
The first horn will blow at 5pm and artists will have until 7pm to create and finish their masterpieces. Patrick Saunders Fine Arts will judge the Quick Paint immediately after.
Live music will also be performed in the park throughout the evening by the Max Levy Trio! Musicians include: Max Levy (saxophone), Peter Martin (guitar), and Seth Lee (bass). We invite you to grab a picnic blanket, a lawn chair or just yourself and join the fun in Roanoke Park on May 6th! This is a free event and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
Roanoke Park is one the original "pods" in Kansas City's historic Parks and Boulevards system, as designed by George E. Kessler. It was referred to as "Roanoke Park" as early as 1904, officially becoming a park on January 13, 1909. It lies in a wooded ravine surrounded by rocky bluffs. Atop the bluffs sit the historic homes of some of Kansas City's most beautiful neighborhoods.
