Katwijk en Plein Air

Katwijk en Plein Air

Special to see!

The Katwijk En Plein Air, 'painting by the sea' event, is organized every year in the summer months. Fortunately, after two years, which prevented the event from taking place due to covid measures, it is possible to organize it this year. Between 3 and 8 July, various artists will come to Katwijk again. As a sponsor of this event, Koningshof offers rental accommodation to the painters. It is extra nice to see painters sometimes putting the finishing touches on the painting at our park.

Around fifteen artists, from the Netherlands and abroad, are invited to participate in the event. Their work will be exhibited in the DUNAatelier in Katwijk from July to the end of September. In addition, there are exhibitions throughout the year by both professional and amateur artists who work from different disciplines.

Painting en plein air (also called pleinairism) is a term used in landscape painting to capture the subject directly on the canvas in the open air, with the emphasis on playing with daylight.
