"Plein Air Plus" 2018 
Third Annual National Juried Competition at the 
Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts, in Loveladies, NJ

We welcome artists to apply to a our Plein Air Event; a unique opportunity for artists & educators who wish to push the boundaries of landscape painting! 

Juror Valerie Craig will select 35 artists to paint the unique seashore environment of Long Beach Island during a two month Paint Out, allowing artists the freedom to participate at any time during July and August. 

Our Paint Out, over a two month period, allows artists to visit and paint the scenic, seashore environment of Long Beach Island (LBI) New Jersey on their own schedule, any time between July 1st through August 31st. Artists can choose the time of day, weather, and varied locations to paint. Artists can paint as often as they wish and enjoy the beautiful coastal landscape.

Culminating in the "Island Life" exhibition and gallery sale in September, 135 paintings will feature the selected artist's Plein Air works and larger studio paintings developed from Plein Air studies. Several prizes will be awarded for both Classical "Plein Air" and "Plein Air Plus" paintings. Prizes for both Classical "Plein Air" and "Plein Air Plus" paintings will be awarded by the Juror at the opening reception on September 23 (artists are not required to attend the reception).

An announcement about the "Island Life" exhibition, listing the participating artists names, will appear in an international publication.

Pine Shore Art's volunteers gathered for about 90 minutes on a Wednesday 
after Do Your Own Thing to review a couple of art projects we brought to the 
residents at Manahawkin Nursing Home, Genesis, and Seacrest facilities

Clockwise:  Jill DeFeliceLaura MoyerCharleen LeslieWilly MuellerJackie Hanley and Linda Saladino working on their 
POP projects

The last trip was on Wednesday, April 18th to NYC to the  Metropolitan Museum of Art for a docent-led tour of special exhibition, Thomas Cole's Journey.  The bus left from PSAA and the charge for the bus, admission to the museum and the docent tour was $70 for members and $75 for non-members. 

The October trip to the Barnes Foundation to see the Berthe Morisot exhibition needs more sign ups. This is a rare opportunity to see the ground breaking work of one of the few women of the Impressionist movement. This exhibition is in Montreal now and will only be traveling to Philadelphia and Dallas before returning to Paris. 

Morisot's work is a unique voice and a true piece of history in the Impressionist movement. Don't miss this chance to see it! The price is slightly higher than some of our other trips, but we are offering at a bargain price compared to what you would normally pay.
