Attention area artists and art enthusiasts! Have you ever wanted to spend a nice, relaxing weekend outdoors doing what you love? If so, now is your chance! The Harvey Dunn Memorial Society has announced the date of the First Annual Plein Air Event.
August 14, 15, and 16, talented artists of all skill levels from all over the area will gather in DeSmet, SD to showcase their talents at the Plein Air Event. Utilizing the historic Ingalls Homestead in DeSmet, artists will be able to create beautiful masterpieces featuring the soft rolling plains and unique history of the area.
Not blessed with artistic talents? Not to worry! This event is still for you!! The Plein Air Event is open to the public, free of charge. Wander through the area, admiring the skills of everyone involved. Spectators will be able to converse with the artists, as well as enjoy the beautiful scenery and fun activities that the Ingalls Homestead has to offer. Also, the pieces created will be displayed throughout the weekend and will be available for purchase on Sunday morning at the Wet Sale (named for the still wet pieces of art being sold).
The Plein Air Event has been created in memory of Harvey Dunn, one of the most famous South Dakotans to ever walk the earth. Dunn, originally from DeSmet, SD, was responsible for showing the world what a farm boy from the midwest was capable of when he enrolled in the Chicago Art Institute. He completed the program, perfecting his already exceptional skill as an artist. He dedicated his life to teaching so others would be aware of their perhaps hidden talents.
Harvey Dunn produced an unbelievable amount of paintings in his life, the most famous possibly being “The Prairie is My Garden.” During his life, he donated over 50 of his most beautiful creations to South Dakota State College, now South Dakota State University. After his death in 1952, his gift kept on giving. At the present time, the South Dakota Art Museum in Brookings houses over 90 Harvey Dunn pieces.
With the legacy of Harvey Dunn living on, talented artists will now be able to join together for a weekend with canvases of all colors. If you are interested in participating, contact the Laura Ingalls Wilder Society to register in advance at 1-800-880-3383, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Wet Sale will take place rain or shine, and will be held at the De Smet Super Deluxe Inn and Suites in case of inclement weather! For artists, an informational meeting will be held on Friday, August 14, and registration is free. Remember, if you are interested in participating in the art event, contact Cheryl or Diane with the Laura Ingalls Wilder Society at 1-800-880-3383 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
The event is being sponsored by: Harvey Dunn Memorial Society, Ingalls Homestead, Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society, and the South Dakota Art Museum.
Hope to see you there for a weekend of painting in the sun!!
