In Plein Site is a must-see exhibit that embraces the spontaneity of plein air painting and ability of artists to capture the essence of downtown Suffolk on canvas. The works featured in this exhibit are the result of a day-long plein air painting adventure on Saturday, May 5, 2018, throughout Downtown Suffolk. The day of painting will culminate in a Crititique and Wet Paint Sale reception from 4:30-6:30pm at the Suffolk Center. The "People's Choice Award" will be presented at that time. Special Thanks to Event/Exhibit Co-Chairs, Sandy Waters and Barbara Harris

See Suffolk through the eyes of years gone by.
Suffolk’s rich heritage dates back to the early 17th century, when Captain John Smith first encountered the Nansemond Indians on the Nansemond River. Even now, you can trace Suffolk’s legacy through our historic homes and neighborhoods, churches and Virginia Civil War Trails. Guided by a Suffolk historian, you meet the people and places that made Suffolk the city it is today. Highlights of this windshield tour include Cedar Hill Cemetery, Riddick’s Folly House Museum, Constant’s Wharf, College Court and Suffolk’s Historic Lakeside neighborhood.
*Please note that this tour includes a stop and brief tour of the Philips-Dawson House (Suffolk Nansemond Historical Society Headquarters)
