Over $3,500 in Prize Awards!

The Plein Air Painting Competitions are friendly in nature encouraging artist growth and expression.

The Arts, Culture and Heritage Committee is pleased to assemble the finest display of Plein Air paintings by local and regional artists under the Tent Gallery in Monument Park. We have been enthusiastically embraced and supported by the public as demonstrated in visitors to the tent and art sales.

The focus in the judging process will be to select paintings that show the highest quality of draftsmanship, color, composition, and diversity, emphasizing representational style and subject matter.

Eligible artists must be at least 18 years old.
