Walter Criley Visitor Center at Radnor Lake

For more than 20 years, The Chestnut Group has partnered with Friends of Radnor Lake to support our mission to protect, preserve and promote the natural integrity of Radnor Lake State Natural Area. This much loved biennial event gives Radnor-lovers and art-lovers the opportunity to purchase original paintings of the scenes of Radnor Lake painted en plein air.

This show celebrates The Chestnut Group’s passion about their art form and about the preservation of threatened natural habitats and local landscapes. The Chestnut Group always presents beautiful, captivating paintings of many of the beloved scenes of Radnor Lake.

This show is made possible through the support of corporate sponsors, and individual patrons and hosts, with a donation of $500 or more. Patron and Host opportunities are available through October 15, 2023.
