On April 7, 2018 Hofwyl Plantation held their Annual Plein Air Invitational honoring local artist Albert Fendig. Organized by The Friends of Hofwyl and local artist George Netherton, this year’s event boasted over 50 local and regional artists who, despite an afternoon downpour, spent the day drawing and painting the scenic grounds of the historic plantation located on U.S. 17 North between Brunswick and Darien. The finished paintings will be displayed at various venues throughout the area during the upcoming year.
