Virtual Gallery Opening App

This year our event will be virtual in place of our physical Opening Reception.  We will launch the Plein Air Brandywine Valley Virtual Gallery App on September 25th for our sponsors, patrons, and the public at large.  This exciting new app was developed specifically for CBH and PABV which allows us to exhibit and offer artists’ works for sale in a new, simple to use and engaging way.
