Are artists worse procrastinators than others? Perhaps. But all should take note that admission to the Plein Air Convention & Exposition (PACE) is going to get more expensive in just two days.
The organizers of PACE say that toward its deadline, there’s a bit of a rush on registration for the event, which will be held this year April 7-11 in sunny Monterey, California. After Jan. 31, the cost starts to go up as early bird registration and monthly payment plans start to tighten. Painters who sign up before midnight on Friday can break down the cost into monthly payments at the lowest total. After the deadline, artists aren’t eligible for the payment plan. And after Feb. 14, the early bird savings of $200 disappear.
People who sign up for PACE will benefit from instruction from the likes of Kevin Macpherson, Dan Gerhartz, Camille Przewodek, Lori Putnam, John Burton, Dawn Whitelaw, Lynn Gertenbach, Joseph McGurl, Lorenzo Chavez, Andy Evansen and dozens more. The diversity of offerings is larger in 2014 as well, with beefed up programs for watercolor and pastel.
