The country is now opening up and we need our in-person creative friends fix. Carol Lynn and Larry Brechner have graciously offered their amazing property for this year's Illiana Artists Annual Plein Air Picnic. We are inviting past members, past juried exhibition artists, and of course current members. Yes, can bring a guest.
Grab your plein air supplies of choice, a lawn chair, and your own lunch and drink. Larry said he will have the grill fired up if you want to cook your food.
