This week’s plein air podcast hosted by B. Eric Rhoads, Publisher and Founder of PleinAir Magazine features Jean Stern, Executive Director of the Irvine Museum and prominent curator, author and plein air judge.

Stern discusses the state of the plein air movement, what artists need to pay attention in order to build excellent careers, and what collectors should think about when buying art.


  1. Very informative interview with Mr Stern. By the way, for one plein air festival, I went through the trouble of putting GPS locations on the paintings, but the buyers really could have cared less. From a historian’s standpoint, however, I can see where this would be valuable. Thanks for posting this podcast! Looking forward to more. – Michael Chesley Johnson
