2018 Plein Aire event scheduled

The City of Marquette announces the second annual “Fresh Cost Plein Aire: Painting the Landscape.” The event will take place on Saturday, June 30. Plein Aire means to paint outdoors, or in “open air,” and artists may paint at any Marquette outdoor location from Founder’s Landing to Presque Isle Park, along the shore or in town. Paintings must illustrate or be inspired by real-life scenes.

This year’s event will also feature a new Dusk to Dark competition segment, to take place on Friday, June 29 from 4 to 10 p.m. Saturday’s main competition will run from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., after which paintings from both competitions will be submitted for judging. A special public reception and viewing will be held at the Presque Isle Pavilion on Saturday from 5 to 8:30 p.m., and over $2,000 in prizes will be awarded for Best of Show, First Place, Second Place, Honorable Mentions and People’s Choice. Artists may pre-register at https://goo.gl/LQnNQn.

“Fresh Coast Plein Aire: Painting the Landscape” is presented by the City of Marquette, Travel Marquette, Lake Superior Art Association, Beth Millner Jewelry, Marquette Downtown Development Authority, Carl Mayer Watercolors and Mommaerts Mahaney Financial Services.
