The Belmar Arts Council is hosting an exhibition of Plein Air paintings, work painted outdoors with a focus on rendering the effects of atmosphere and light in nature. While the show is inspired by the Plein Air group that includes several of our BAC members, anyone can enter this upcoming exhibition.
All works must be original creations by the artist, painted outdoors, and must be show ready and wired for hanging. Artists may enter up to two works each, with a maximum of one per artist that may be chosen for the exhibition. Acceptance into the show is not guaranteed. Entry fee is $10 per piece for BAC members, $15 per piece for non-members. Work must be dropped off for jurying by the hanging committee on Saturday, February 21 from 1 to 3 pm. Unaccepted work should be picked up during office hours Feb 25 - 27.
The exhibition will open with a reception on Saturday, February 28, from 3 to 5 pm. People who attend the reception can vote for favorites, with People's Choice Awards announced at 4:45 pm. The show will remain on display through March 19, 2009.
