PleinAairSW LOGO

This past weekend in Dallas was the opening reception for PASW 2017 and if you couldn’t make it, you missed a bunch of fun!  We’re so pleased to announce the Plein Air Southwest Salon award winners.  Thanks to our Juror, Kenn Erroll Backhaus – his was a daunting task; only 23 paintings out of the 201 exhibited could receive an award.  In addition to the juror’s selections, there was an Artist’s Choice, and a People’s Choice award.

 

Congratulations to all the PASW artists – and a BIG shout out to the winners!

Kenn Bachaus, judge for this year’s event, chose 25 winners from the 217 entries. There were 88 participating artists from 19 states. In addition, the Artists’ Choice winner was chosen from the quick-draw entries. Show entries can be seen at the following link:

Outdoor Painters Society’s Plein Air Southwest Salon

Mike Mahon - Santa Fe Wonderland

The Artists Showplace Gallery is delighted to host one of the premier art events of the season. Plein Air Southwest Salon is a juried competition, exhibition and sale sponsored by the Outdoor Painters Society and showcased every April in Dallas. The annual event seeks to promote an appreciation for the process of en plen air, which is French for “in open air”. Most of the works were 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.

The exhibit runs from April 8 to May 13. The opening reception and presentation of awards will take place on Saturday, April 8, from 3:00 to 6:00. On Sunday, April 9, the gallery will be open from 1:00 to 5:00, with artist demonstrations from 2:00 to 4:00.
