Call to Artists to submit Plein Air pieces showcasing the beauty of Florida

The Studio is seeking artwork for “A Plein Air Affair”, a juried exhibit opening on February 7. Receiving is Monday February 5, from 1- 4 pm. All artwork must have been executed outdoors on location in Florida during the past 3 years in watercolor, oil, acrylic or pastel mediums. Island resident and award winning plein air artist Cory Wright will jury the show, which will award over $500 in prizes to the selected winners. An artists’ reception will be held on Thursday February 15 from 6 to 8 pm.
“En plein air” is French for ‘in the open air’. Plein Air began in the late 1800s when the Impressionists ventured from their studios into nature to capture the effects of sunlight and different times of days on a subject. Plein paintings require the artist to be skilled at rapid composition and brushwork in order to capture the light before it changes.
The complete artist guidelines are available at www.thestudioatgulfandpine.com or can be picked up at The Studio. The Studio at Gulf and Pine is located at 10101 Gulf Drive.
