Beginning in 2018, Outdoor Painters of Minnesota is collaborating with Johnson Heritage Post Art Gallery to continue the Plein Air Grand Marais competition. Due to time and resource constraints, the competition this year is OPEN BUT LIMITED: professional painting instructors offering workshops were reserved a spot in the competition, and 2017 juried participants were given advance notice of the SignUp. Participation is limited to 75 due to gallery space. But a new open exhibit for non-competition painters has been added thanks to a community sponsor, Yellow Bird Fine Art. Up to 35 painters may participate by signing up below. A special reception will be held the evening of Wednesday, September 12, 2018, and a Best of Show will be awarded.
JHP and Yellow Bird Fine Art charge a 30% gallery commission on all painting sales. Visit our web site and subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed, and be sure to watch for messages to participants sent through SignUp.com.
