On February 6, 2016 the publisher of Plein Air Magazine stewarded a group of one hundred artists and friends to Havana, Cuba. Local artist Betty Huang, owner of Studio B Gallery, and photographer Ted Mueller of Ted Mueller Photography were part of this historic trip. Ted has been responsible for documenting the events of Plein Air Easton for many years. These photos are used to both market and celebrate the event.
Maybe you've considered applying to Plein Air Easton in the past. Maybe you've stood on the sidelines and observed the competition artists in action. Maybe you've participated in Quick Draw before and didn't think you were ready for the real thing. Here are 5 reasons you need to put that aside and apply today - you may be our next Grand Champion.
Save the Date! Plein Air Easton will take place July 9-17 when 58 juried artists will descend on the landscape of the Delmarva Peninsula to paint in the open air. All the completed artworks will be on display during the weekend of the 16th and 17th for viewing and purchase at The Academy Art Museum and The Waterfowl Building in Easton.
With the recent release of the 2016 competition prospectus, Plein Air Easton is proud to announce this year’s judge and jurist.
