Ahead of the 16th Festival this coming August Bank Holiday, Art in the Open are once again launching their exclusive Patron Scheme, granting Patrons & a guest first access to over 200 artworks of counties Wexford, Carlow & Waterford before the public exhibition. Patrons are invited to the exhibition preview with a wine reception in Green Acres Gallery at 2pm in advance of the public opening at 3pm.

Patron membership is priced at €50, though those who purchase artwork at the exhibition will get an equivalent discount on the day. Not only that, but Patrons will support Europe’s largest outdoor painting festival, bringing artists from 17 countries around the world to the beautiful Sunny South East.  Art in the Open makes a major impact from a tourism point of view in County Wexford with in excess of 2,300 bed-nights yielding €237,000 for the local economy.

Wexford’s volunteer-led, non-profit festival will enhance the town with street art, free demonstrations & charity fundraising, this year in support of Wexford Women’s Refuge.
