Artists of all ages enjoyed a plein air art event in Lilburn City Park June 4-5.

The evening of June 4 found a large crowd in Lilburn City Park as “Rock the Park” began its concert featuring the band “Rumours.” Families and concert-goers were eager to hear “the country’s premiere Fleetwood Mac tribute band,” but they were also in for a treat of a different kind.

Citizen’s Exchange Art Collective, the Grace Note Foundation and Crescent Sun Gallery had arranged a visual art happening to add to the weekend’s festivities. A number of artists began putting up their easels and arranging painting supplies in order to participate in a Plein Air event.
