Coastal VA Plein Air invites professional plein air artists to express their interest in participating in our 2022 event and fundraiser. This is an INVITATIONAL event, and invitations will be extended in early November to selected artists. A maximum of 20 artists will be invited. Artists must have extensive plein air experience and an impressive body of work; a professional website; and submit three images of recent plein air work, along with a bio. There is no application fee, but participating artists agree to participate during the entire event, painting original and local plein air works on stamped canvases. Paintings created during the event will be offered for sale to the public on the final day of the event and a 30% commission will be applicable to Coastal VA Plein Air. Coastal VA Plein Air is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to build community through art. Funds raised are used to purchase public art and provide art education for our community. Interested artists may apply by emailing their interest to coastalvapleinair@gmail.com, along with three recent examples of plein air work, bio, and history of accomplishments. Please include a link to your website.
