2016 Plein Air Southwest Salon at Southwest Gallery

PleinAairSW LOGO

Plein Air Southwest Salon is a juried plein air competition, exhibition and sale sponsored by the Outdoor Painters Society and showcased each April at Southwest Gallery in Dallas, Texas. The Salon features plein air paintings from the “best of the best” painters working today.
Plein Air Southwest Salon has earned the reputation as one of the premier events of Spring. The Outdoor Painters Society sponsors the event to promote an appreciation for the process of painting “en plein air” which is French for “in open air”. Most works are completed in a single painting session, painted outdoors on location and are characterized by the bold use of color, design and the freshness of paint application.

For the 11th year, Plein Air Southwest Salon 2016 will be hosted by Southwest Gallery at 4500 Sigma Rd, Dallas, TX 75244. 88 artists representing 19 states will be exhibiting, plus the juror Marc Hanson and guest artist Lori Putnam.
