The Pacific Northwest Plein Air Event runs this weekend, September 26 - 28!

This is the 12th annual Plein Air Event in the Columbia River Gorge and I’ve been fortunate to participate every year since its inception in 2005. Adding more excitement to this year’s event, the exhibition of paintings will be hosted for the first time at the Maryhill Museum of Art.

The opening reception is  Friday, August 26, from 5 - 7pm. 
       The public is invited to view the paintings artists created in plein air, meet the artists and enjoy wine and hors d'oeuvres. Artwork will be available for purchase.

Exhibition continues Saturday & Sunday (Aug 27 & 28) at Maryhill Museum of Art; hours are10 a.m. to 5 p.m. exhibit is free with paid museum admission. Paintings will also be for sale.

Plein Air on live TV! 
I was featured this week on KATU morning news, along with friends Aimee Erickson and Thomas Kitts, while we were painting the sunrise in Stevenson, WA. It was a wonderful way to give the public an insight on plein air painting and help promote the event. You can view my interview here. 

Hope to see you out at Maryhill!
