Kui Zheng, “Fireworks in Old House,” oil, 24 x 24 inches (First Place, August/September 2017 PleinAir Salon)

Only hours remain to submit your materials for the October/November PleinAir Salon!  You could win $250, $500, or even $1,000 if your painting is chosen for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place by judge Scott Shields.  When is the deadline?

Your chance at a PleinAir Salon victory is about to slip away—at least for the October/November bi-monthly portion of the competition.  Artists have until the stroke of midnight tomorrow, Thursday November 30, to enter their works for consideration in a number of different categories.  Judged by Scott Shields, Chief Curator at the Crocker Art Museum, the artwork selected for first place will earn the artist $1,000 and consideration for the annual grand prize of $15,000—which is awarded on stage at the PleinAir Convention & Expo in Santa Fe, New Mexico in April 2018.

It doesn’t take much time to create your account and enter the competition.  A win here could change your career—or life!  To learn more, visit the PleinAir Salon.
