About The Event
“The 2019 Figurative Art Convention will take place in Colonial Williamsburg on November 10-13, 2019. We chose Williamsburg because we like places with character, and because of its deep heritage of figure and portrait painting and its influence on American life.
Roam this living museum when you’re not in sessions or in the studio painting. We’ll have models in historical costumes, and we’ll even have a new plein air day on the streets of this historic old town.
The convention will be held within Colonial Williamsburg at the classic Williamsburg Inn, which is one block from the old town and right next door to the museum, which houses many very important paintings from the Colonial era.
Just an 8-hour train trip from New York City and easy driving distance from most of the Northeast Corridor, Williamsburg offers space to expand the convention — and we already have double the number of registrations we had this time last year.” – Eric Rhoades, 2019
