For those who aren’t familiar with the event, Plein Air Mt. Lebanon is a week-long celebration of the arts. This year it’s taking place from October 5th to the 12th and artists from across the country are coming to my ‘hood to paint outdoors, or en plein air, for the week.
The artists will debut their work and have it available for sale at an Artists’ Market, with the proceeds being made available to local arts programming through a mini-grant program.
A special few will have the opportunity to preview the work and have first crack at buying it before the gallery is open to the general public. The VIP Preview Party: The Tastes of Mt Lebanon (where this will happen) takes place on October 10th from 7-9PM. And because it’s a preview party AND tasting event, there will be a smattering of food and libations from local restaurants and bars.
As the daughter of an artist and a food blogger, this event just plain (or should I say plein) speaks to my heart.
So much so, that I’ve agreed to run a little contest for a pair of tickets (i.e.—TWO tickets) to the event ($250 value).
The Art of Food
Here’s how this is going to work.
- You take a photo* of your favorite food, meal, herb, drink, or food product**.
- You email me said photo with the subject line “Art of Food Submission” by October 6th at 11:59PM ET.
- I upload the submissions to a special #ArtOfFood album on my Facebook page where people can vote by LIKING their favorite image.
- Photo with the most likes by October 8th (AKA the winner) will receive 2 tickets to the VIP Preview Party and Tasting Event.
Easy as pie, right?
There are NO RULES around what the photo is, just keep it classy please.
