Parting Shot: Spring Finds the Adirondacks

Written by

Warm weather has taken hold of most of the country, and Becky Harblin reports that it has made its way north, to the Adirondack Mountains and beyond.

19th-century landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted is famous for his enchanting urban parks, and recently Atlanta celebrated his creations in that Southern city with a plein air competition focused on his six-part string of public places, dubbed Olmsted Linear Park. The inaugural edition of the Olmsted Plein Air Invitational attracted some top talent. 

After PleinAir magazine publisher Eric Rhoads announced the Plein Air Force program in mid-April at the Plein Air Convention & Expo (PACE), several people approached PleinAir staff, talking about how their efforts to promote plein air painting seemed to dovetail with the goals of the new grassroots program.

What Is the Plein Air Force?

Written by

Eric Rhoads, the publisher of PleinAir magazine, unveiled a new program at the Plein Air Convention & Expo earlier this month called the Plein Air Force. Attendees—and everyone else—were wondering what he was up to, as somewhat cryptic notes were posted online and served up in emails over the last few months. After some on stage theatrics with Rhoads and others coming on stage in bomber jackets, Rhoads announced his plan...and now we know: the Plein Air Force is a program to help painters spread the word about plein air painting, and in the process, everyone benefits. How?

The 2016 Plein Air Convention & Expo (PACE) is already half full, and the 2015 event only concluded 12 days ago. Satisfied attendees are the main reason for high demand, but the amenities offered at PACE's new home may be making a difference, too. One PACE attendee is already planning a four-month plein air painting trip around the 2016 event.

The Greatest Painting Challenge?

Written by
