Mort Luby with the piece that won him First Place at the 2014 Woodstock Plein Air Festival.

Some artists don’t even blink at the cold temperatures and snow. Others hunker down in the studio, and plan their plein air outings in the upcoming warmer months. We’ll be discussing some possible destinations for winter planners in upcoming editions of PleinAir Today. First up: Woodstock, Illinois. 

Last year’s plein air event in Woodstock launched the town’s annual competition in fine fashion, and organizers have already set the date for the 2015 event. The 2nd annual Woodstock plein air festival will be held May 23-31, and the headquarters will be the Old Court House Arts Center. There will be awards and a quick draw event. Mark it on your calendar and keep an eye on the Old Court House Arts Center’s webpage for updated information.
