OPS to change format of the annual Plein Air Southwest event

From the Outdoors Painters Society Board:

SAVE THE DATES! MAY 21-26, 2018

The annual Plein Air Southwest juried membership show is changing from a gallery exhibition to a Six-day competition paint out event in Rockport TX! The cities of Rockport, Fulton, Aransas Pass, and Port A are our paint out destinations! Rockport Center for the Arts will host the exhibition and awards reception. Speaking of awards, the cash awards are increased from $12,000 to $15,000 and we anticipate up to $15,000 in sponsors’ merchandise certificates. We are still finalizing the exhibition details with the art center but in the meantime, we wanted to share this exciting news. The judge (to be announced) will lead a three-day plein air workshop in Rockport, May 27-29.

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