The ninth edition of the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico National Juried Members show will be opening at Sorrel Sky Gallery in November. In 2017, acclaimed artist Bob Rohm is juror of awards while Roger Williams, Dave Ballew, and Shanan Campbell Wells made the exhibition selections.

New Mexico is certainly one of the best states for outdoor painting — which is why we chose Santa Fe as the location for the 2018 Plein Air Convention & Expo! That said, one can expect any display from the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico to be a brilliant showcase not to be missed, making the 9th Annual PAPNM National Juried Members show a must-see.
