We look forward to seeing many of you as possible at this year’s Chestnut Creek school of the Arts Plein Air day! Our family farm, is a green majesty of meadow , forests, creeks, hilltops, barns, springs, and a beautiful pond. We welcome you to join us, to wander these fields and find inspiration for your art. This year, the plein air event will be coincident with our annual summer solstice party, which usually brings a nice crowd of about 75 people- all potential buyers for your paintings! Hope to see you, to celebrate both plein air and solstice!
The artist is responsible for the sales of extra work brought.
*CCCSA will collect 25% of each sale from the “wet paintings” and asks for 25% of all other sales during the event. *
Founded by Jeremiah Stone circa 1760, Stonefarm is now entering it ninth generation in the Stone family. Held in a conservation trust, the farm’s gentle rolling pastures and forest land sit in the middle of the Elk Creek Valley, with Point Lookout to the south and Iron Mountain to the north.
Theresa Stone Lazo, the 7th generation to live on the farm, and her husband Robert, live in the farmhouse built by Theresa’s great grandfather, Chrisman Stone, in 1886. The house is adorned with the family’s extensive contemporary and classical art collection.
