"A Brush With The Blues"

A Plein Air Event - April 5 - 9, 2014

For five days in April, artists will be pouring over Hernando County painting the scenic and cultural attributes readily available here. This beehive of activity is one of the pre-festival activities with the Florida Blueberry Festival.

Now, we invite you to be a part of our third annual "A Brush With The Blues". En Plein Air (in the open air) painters from across the Tampa Bay area will be capturing the many beautiful and unique scenes our county offers for five days, April 5 through 9, recording our county as it is today for the generations who follow. This will be followed by a breakfast reception with awards for the painters on Sunday April 13. This event will be widely publicized and the art works will be on display during the Florida Blueberry Festival.
