A Plein Air Inspired Art Competition

Posted by | Featured News, News | No Comments

You are cordially invited to enter a new multi-media art competition and exhibition sponsored by The Colfax Arts Council. The event is based on a classic plein air painting competition but with a few fresh twists:
1. It is open to ALL MEDIA—i.e. painting, fabric art, sculpture, photography, etc.
2. Works must have an open air (plein air) perspective on a specific subject. However, artists may either complete their artworks in the traditional plein-air manner on site, or sketch or photograph their subject on site and complete the work elsewhere.
3. Subjects must be selected within a 40-mile radius of Colfax
All submissions will be part of a jury selection process for acceptance into the exhibition. The Colfax Arts Council will award a First Place award of $300, a Second Place award of $200, and a Third Place award of $100. During the exhibition, the public can vote for a People’s Choice Award, the winner will also receive $100.
