Cashiers Plein Air Festival

Nationally acclaimed painters from throughout the country set up their easels to capture the beauty of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau landscape and quaint mountain lifestyle. This type of outdoor location painting is known as Plein Air, French for open air.

The Cashiers Plein Air Festival is a biennial event held to raise funds to enhance The Village Green. During this week-long event, artists set up their easels in and around Cashiers to capture the landscape and lifestyle of the area. These unique paintings are displayed for viewing and sale at The Village Green Commons. Other highlights include a special patrons’ gala and auction as well as workshops and a lecture by the artists.

The Cashiers Plein Air Festival will take place July 12-16, 2016. The week features a fabulous schedule of events to watch art happen! For more information about any of these special events or to register, contact us at
