The Cook Foundation is excited to sponsor and organize this inaugural event. Approximately twenty highly acclaimed and award-winning artists, featured in Gary Pendleton’s definitive book, 100 Plein Air Painters of the Mid Atlantic are participating in this event. These artists have been selected by our curator artist, Dorothy Fagan, to celebrate life at the river over 5 days. They will capture our amazing countryside and people at work on boats and farms in the first Heart of the River Collection. Artists will gather at designated picturesque venues where you can observe the magic unfold.
