"The Channel" by Kim VanDerHoek won "Best Oil" in the April/May 2019 PleinAir Salon

Dear Friends,

Normally we award the PleinAir Salon winners annually at the Plein Air Convention & Expo (PACE) in the spring.

But this year PACE was rescheduled to August. Then it was cancelled.

We need to award this money, so we’re going to do it online.

Mark your calendar for Friday, September 25, at 8 p.m. Eastern to watch live and discover who wins the $15,000 grand prize and the cover of PleinAir Magazine!

Join PleinAir Publisher Eric Rhoads, Editor-in-Chief Kelly Kane, and Online Editor Cherie Dawn Haas, and watch us award $30,000 in prize money to the best painters of the year.

Please visit one of the links below to watch, starting at 8pm ET.


Enter your best works in the PleinAir Salon here – the September competition is open and is accepting entries until midnight on September 30, 2020! Helena Fox, owner of Helena Fox Gallery, is the September judge.
