The 2020 Port Wing Plein Air Painting Festival has been cancelled due to corona virus concerns.
We thought long and hard about the Festival. It was very difficult to decide to cancel this 11th year. The main Plein Air event is the exhibition. The only place we can hold that exhibition is in our town hall and it is impossible to have social distancing there because of the small size of the hall.
Even though the event is 2 months away, decisions need to be made now if it were to occur.
Things may change before the end of July, but absent a vaccine (yes, some promising trials are occurring) or a cure now, we can’t take the responsibility of spreading the infection. We sincerely hope we are wrong and the reasons for our decision turn out to be invalid.
The virus situation willing, the next Port Wing Plein Air Painting Festival will occur on July 29, 30, 31, and August 1, 2021.
