Plein Air Paintout at Windridge Vineyard
Friday, June 3, 9 am-1 pm


Spend the early morning and early afternoon painting en plein air with fellow MAA members at the beautiful Windridge Vineyards. The vines have started their journey toward the sky, with the hope of luscious purple grapes later in summer. The vineyard sits atop rolling hills surrounded by forested areas that are bursting with new growth. No doubt you will find lots of artistic inspiration.

  • Where:  Meet on the outdoor patio at the vineyard tasting room.
  • Don't forget: Easel, chair and umbrella or hat for shade and possibly a camera or iPhone in case you want to complete your work later. 
  • Use of Windridge chairs or tables:  You may only use Windridge picnic tables or outdoor chairs if you cover them to avoid getting paint on them.  
  • Cost: Free with registration
  • Sharing your art : Take time to share your work with the other plein air artists after painting. We will have a reserved table for you at the vineyard pavilion. 
  • Tasting room access:  The tasting room is not open until 11 am. Drinks and snacks will not be for sale until then. However, the restrooms will be accessible to us.  
  • Rain date:  If the weather is poor, we'll postpone. Rain date TBD. 
  • Contact:  MAA's Plein Air Chair, Sandhya Sharma, will be on site as our coordinator. Email her at sandhya02sharma@yahoo.com. 
  • About Windridge: The vineyard is a family-owned farm winery dedicated to producing premium estate grown wines. Situated on the Piedmont plateau of Maryland, our three vineyard sites have been carefully chosen for their unique geology and microclimates. Located in Darnestown, MD, Windridge has 27 acres of vineyards. We encourage you to stop by the tasting room to see 19 pieces of art by MAA artists
