The judges for this year’s PleinAir Salon competition are just about ready to change artists’ lives. Dawn Whitelaw, Fine Art Connoisseur editor Peter Trippi, and Steve Doherty have been reviewing all the semi-finalists in the bimonthly competition so the big announcement can be made at the Plein Air Convention. That announcement will be followed by a list of the new contest rules and prizes for next year. Make sure to check the contest website, www.pleinairsalon.com, immediately after the convention.
