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.

Because of the recent popularity of walking and skating on the ice in the lower harbor and the expected warmer weather this week, we'd like to remind residents that there is a strong potential for the harbor ice to shift and/or breakup without much notice.Due to warming weather and strong currents, Lake Superior ice conditions may deteriorate rapidly.Your safety is your responsibility. If you do go out on the ice, let someone know where you are going, do not go alone, and check current ice condition reports before you go. Remember, when in doubt…do not go out.If you have any questions, please contact the Marquette City Fire Department: (906) 225-8936. ... See MoreSee Less
