CENTRAL ART, ART PRESENCE

& SOUTHERN OREGON ARTIST WORKSHOP PRESENT

SOUTHERN OREGON PLEIN AIR

JUNE 19 – JUNE 22 2019, $85 registration fee

 

Southern Oregon Plein Air (SOPA) invites artists of all levels to participate in 4 days of plein air painting!

 

Artists can customize their SOPA experience by participating in a vendor fair, attending FREE plein air presentations, joining guest artists for on-location demonstrations, entering art into a juried show, participating in a “quick draw” event, and taking advantage of social events.

 

Paintings entered into the competition will be juried for over $1000 in cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd places and four honorable mentions. This year’s juror is Cody Bustamante, Professor of Art at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, OR.

 

Wednesday June 19th will begin check-in and registration at Central Art in Downtown Medford. During this time, there will be a vendor fair in which artists will have the opportunity to visit with various art supply vendors and take advantage of incredible savings on plein air painting supplies!

 

After registration and vendor fair, SOPA participants will head to Art Presence Art Center in beautiful Jacksonville, OR for an artist talk and a delicious catered dinner.

 

Thursday and Friday, June 20th & 21st, will be paint outs. Artists may paint at any location of their choice in a 50 mile radius of Medford, OR. However, we encourage artists to join guest artists at specific prime locations to paint the beautiful landscapes and urban designs in Southern Oregon.

 

Guest Artists Include:

Phil Juttlestad – Portland Artist

Stefan Baumann – Artist / Instructional Coach / PBS Show “The Grand View”

Gabriel Lipper – Local Artist and Instructor

Willo Balfrey – Local Artist and Instructor

Jeanne LaRae – Local Artist and Instructor

 

SOPA will conclude on Saturday June 22nd at Art Presence Art Center. Start this busy day early with a nice breakfast hosted by Central Art. Activities this day include announcing winners of the plein air competition, displayed artwork for public viewing, a quick-paint competition, exhibition painting by local artist, gallery walk with juror Cody Bustamante, and an opening reception. Events will conclude by 3pm.

 

“En Plein Air” competition paintings will be on exhibit June 22-30.
