Art in the open is Supporting MRI Now for Friends of Wexford Hospital

Join the Patron programme for €50

What does €50 to be a Patron get you? – You get an invitation for you and a companion to the AITO exhibition preview wine & canapé reception in Greenacres at 2pm on Sunday 6th August. There you will get first dibs on the best of over 200 paintings of County Wexford by talented artists from around 13 countries. And if you buy, you will receive €50 back from the purchase price. Either way, you are supporting a great little festival which is non-profit, run by volunteers, creates no noise, litter or traffic jams and generates more than 1500 bed-nights to the economy every year and a colossal amount in visitor spending. You will also be supporting decorative street art in Wexford, mural workshops for teens, a flag project for primary schoolchildren and a fundraiser for an MRI scanner for Wexford General Hospital. Be proud that Wexford’s own Art in the Open is the largest plein air painting festival in Europe.
