Beginning in 2018, Outdoor Painters of Minnesota will collaborate with Johnson Heritage Post Art Gallery to continue the Plein Air Grand Marais competition. The competition will be OPEN BUT LIMITED: professional painting instructors offering workshops are reserved a spot in the competition, and 2017 juried participants will be given advance notice of the SignUp. To avoid overcrowding the gallery, participation is limited to 75.
We are working to increase prize money, add daily workshops offered by some of our professional painting instructors to encourage attendance and public interest in the event, and have reduced the gallery commission on painting sales to 30%.
