The unique audience of PleinAir magazine is reflective of the plein air community. Like plein air art shows and events, where the attendance is made up of a combination of artists, collectors, and art professionals, PleinAir magazine is a direct representation of this audience. Each issue of the magazine (published bi-monthly) is distributed on newsstands and to subscribers who are collectors and artists.

The publication features sectioned content, allowing advertisers to be in the section most likely to engage their desired audience, and of course general sections and premium offerings are available. Our marketing consultants can provide updated audience statistics. PleinAir magazine was originally published from 2004-2006, at which time the content, direction, and name were changed to create another successful publication called Fine Art Connoisseur. However, the outcry from subscribers has remained constant enough to convince us to begin publishing again. Original issues have sold out, and we believe the new issues will also sell out based on the high level at which the announcement of the re-release has been embraced.

Who Should Advertise?

  • If you want to reach plein air art collectors: art galleries, art museums, artists, events and art shows, framers etc.
  • If you want to reach artists: workshop providers, ateliers and art schools, framers, art retailers, art materials retailers etc.

Note: Active professional plein air artists consume large volumes of panels, canvas and paints.

“I was so pleased that my recent classified ad in PleinAir obtained great results with signups for Open Air Italy workshops. I am so pleased I will be continuing my ongoing marketing of our other great opportunities with display ads for the additional workshops all over Europe!  Thank you PleinAir Magazine for growing my business!”Susan Truitt, Open Air Italy
