Plein Air, meaning "in
the open air", is a form of art created outdoors. The artist listens to
their senses, paying particular attention to light.
Our focus is the Monroe
Welcome Center and it's surroundings. Choose your perspective and have
fun. Bridge, building, garden....
This is not a competition,
just a gathering of artists and friends.
There is an opportunity to
have your plein air piece reproduced on postcards for the Monroe Welcome Center
and the use of the Center's inside space to display your work has been
generously provided by director Patricia Riess of the Monroe Welcome Center.
Come and join us in a
celebration of the arts.
Hosted by Art on the
Bluffs, Inc. and Welcome Center of Monroe County.
Send this invite along to
persons of interest.

Note to Artists, Volunteers & Supporters: You
have probably noticed the absence of information in regards to our 2014

decided to forgo planning the walk this year in hopes of making strides
in developing our organization. We are so grateful for the
overwhelming support from our community over the past 5 years, please be
assured that we will be pursuing other community events in place of the
We are using this time to fund raise
and restructure for next year's art walk. It is our hope to re-establish
Art On The Bluffs as a community- wide organization, expanding our
membership, fostering relationships with local businesses and most
importantly promoting the arts. Please stay tuned for more info on upcoming events and news about AOTB around town.
It was a beautiful day and the crowds came out in numbers to stroll along Main Street and enjoy the sights and sounds of the art walk!
The day started off with the ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly named Susan Nobbe Children's Garden in
honor of our late, dear friend and strong supporter of Art on the Bluffs. We
are pleased to recognize Susan for her positive influence and unwavering
support of our Art Walk event, love of the arts and devotion to the children of
Susan's daughter Lauren and son Drew assist little Alayna cutting the ribbon at the entrance of the Children's Garden.
Members of Susan's family, Art on the Bluffs Committee members and City Council members gather together in front of the Children's Garden.
