It’s here! Your 2021 Ultimate Guide to Plein Air Events & Organizations, a free resource from PleinAir Magazine. “Nothing in the history of art has ever seen a movement this large, a movement that has become a lifestyle,” said Eric Rhoads, Publisher of PleinAir Magazine.

“I like to say it’s the new golf. Whether amateurs, hobbyists, or professionals, thousands of artists are living the lifestyle of outdoor painting. Like golf, it is mentally challenging and stimulating, it’s social, and it’s relaxing and allows you to forget everything else for a while. It involves being outdoors in beautiful places, provides some exercise, and can even lead to world travel.

“But unlike golf, it uses your creative brain and is an outlet for developing your artistic ability. And for some it can provide an income, or at least the gratification of being occasionally involved in shows or sales.”
