Allemaengel Plein Air Challenge

October 10, 2024

Albany Township Historical Society, 404 Old Philly Pike, Kempton, PA

The Albany Township Historical Society is proud to announce a unique art event to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of Kempton in 1874. During October 10-12, 2024 the society will be sponsoring the Allemaengel Plein Air Challenge. The show will feature 30 to 40 juried artists who work outdoors in various mediums including oil, watercolor, and pastel. Two special youth categories will also be offered. Artists will compete for $4000+ in awards.

The event will occur in rural agrarian Albany Township in northern Berks County, Pennsylvania. All artists will create original works of art that capture the landscape, architecture, and all-around beauty of Kempton and Albany Township. Vistas to and from the mountains, historic structures, meandering streams, and rural farmsteads and lifestyles will provide our painters with an abundance of subject matter.
