Peninsula Plein Air Competition Exhibit through November 22, 2021

October 23, 2021

By Janet Dodrill

Peninsula Art Academy (www.peninsulaartacademy.org) hosts a Plein Air competition, open to all artists, October 14-16, 2021. Paintings are created (or 2-D work) outdoors in natural available light over the course of three days (Thursday through Saturday) around prime landmarks and locations around beautiful Peninsula, Ohio including in the Cuyahoga National Park. By the end of the third day (Saturday) the work must be completed (two pieces allowed per artist), framed and ready to hang. The exhibit is on Sunday, October 17, 2021 directly following, with a reception and awards ceremony from 3-6pm. Juried by David Rankin.

This was my third year participating in the event, and though both demanding and challenging, it was a very enriching way to build my skills and technique, and the experience even allowed me to meet several local area artists. I created two paintings, Cedar Grove Cemetery, 16″ x 20″ oil on canvas, and GAR Hall, 8″ x 10″ gouache. I am looking forward to future events offered by the Peninsula Art Academy.

The exhibit runs October 18 – November 22, 2021
