Artists of all shades and types gather in this colorful Dexter festival. It begins on Monday the 17th with a presentation on the history of Plein Art at the Dexter Library. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, artists will dip their brushes and paint what they see around town. Friday and Saturday is when the real fun begins, with quick draw competitions (with cash prizes), gallery viewings, silent auctions, and live Jazz by the Dexter Community Orchestra. The award ceremony for all contributing artists takes place on Friday, with a $750 first prize award for professional artists, and $250 for emerging artists. There’s something for children as well: local street artist David Zinn’s chalk art event in Monument Park.
