Caledon State Park and FCCA host 2021 “Seurat Sunday” on September 12th

The Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts (FCCA) continues its annual tradition of sponsoring “Seurat Sunday”, an all-day plein air painting and photography event, on September 12th, 10 am to 3 pm, at Caledon State Park, 16617 Caledon Road, King George, VA, 22401. This year’s event includes an art show/sale sponsored by the Friends of Caledon for participating artists/photographers who wish to display work for sale from 10 am to 4 pm at the Visitor’s Center. FREE admission/parking is provided for participating artists and photographers. Transportation is provided to scenic areas along the trails, marshes and beaches. Artists are invited to spend the day at their preferred locations or move about the park seeking photo opportunities where they will find nature’s best vistas and views of eagles in flight.

After a day of capturing visual images, the participants will return to the Visitors Center for a display of their day’s work and light refreshments reception provided by the Friends of Caledon at 3 pm.  Rain date is September 19th.

The Seurat Sunday event has long been a tradition in the region, dating back to the late 1970s.  Started by the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts in cooperation with Belmont and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Seurat Sunday is named for the French Post-Impressionist painter, Georges Seurat (1859-1891), best known for his landscape painting, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grande Jatte” of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The FCCA is proud to partner with the Caledon State Park and the Friends of Caledon to offer this unique art event for artists and photographers. Registration is requested by Friday, September 11th.  Phone 540-760-6928 and leave name, contact information and number in your party.  Bring a bag lunch if desired. Prize Drawing for participants at the reception.
