Sue Bennett Painting Honored with Museum Purchase Award

Plein Air artists completed a successful 3 month period of painting in the Yaquina River Watershed as part of the second annual Toledo Plein Air Event and Open Juried Plein Air Show. The event is sponsored by the Yaquina River Museum of Art. 2015 Jurors were Becky Miller and Michael Gibbons.

Jacksonville artist Sue Bennett recently received an announcement that her painting “Yasek Loop Barn” has been chosen for the Permanent Collection Purchase Award from this year’s exhibit at the Yaquina River Museum of Art, Toledo, Oregon.

Sue Bennett is a classically trained artist who lives and works in Jacksonville, Oregon. She and her husband Steve (also an accomplished painter) traveled to Toledo, Oregon to paint during the summer and the result is “Yasek Loop” oil 8 ½” x 11 ½” a brilliant example of the rural landscape in the watershed.

Congratulations, Sue!
