The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts will host a block party in honor of the upcoming 10th anniversary of EnPleinAirTEXAS, and to celebrate the exhibits that will be on display through July 9. The party is free and open to the public, and music and refreshments will be provided.

SAMFA’s galleries on Oakes Street have two exhibits on display from June 10 to July 9. Admission is free. Hours are Tues-Sat 10 AM to 4 PM; Sunday 1 PM to 4 PM; closed Monday.

“Celebrating San Angelo’s Own Plein Air Artists” will be on display in the Coop Gallery (427 S. Oakes St.). This exhibit features works by nine local artists, all of whom have been selected over the years to paint in the EPAT Competition, with a special tribute to Tom Orsak (1950-2020).

“For the Love of SAMFA: Exhibit and Sale” is on display in Gallery Verde (417 S. Oakes St.). This exhibit and sale features a special selection of EPAT paintings reserved from 2022 and prior years, along with artworks given to the museum by generous benefactors to raise funds for SAMFA programs. With every $10 raised, SAMFA can give one local child a meaningful art experience. Since 2014, art sales from EPAT have benefitted more than 6,000 children per year.

The 2023 dates for EnPleinAirTEXAS are October 20-28.
