Come for an old-fashioned Sunday afternoon in the park at Landis Valley Museum. Great art, crafts, music, ice cream, and pleasant conversation with friends under the trees. There will be plenty of entertainment for the entire family with music, children’s art activities, and horse-drawn wagon rides around the property.
To produce this event, we partnered with the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen to present A Plein Air Sunday: A Celebration of Traditional Craft. This event is the culmination of an annual competition among artists reflecting upon Landis Valley Museum. It features judging of plein air artworks* produced outdoors throughout the year at the museum. These juried artists and craftspeople will also exhibit their pieces in the millstone grove where you can purchase art and crafts that bring Landis Valley right into your home, if desired.
Don’t miss it. It’s a tradition that brings many families here every year to experience an old-fashioned Sunday in the park.
Ice cream and cold drinks will be available for purchase.
*Anyone interested in entering the plein air competition or applying to become an exhibitor during the event should contact the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen directly at (717) 431-8706.
