TSKW Plein Air Painting Competition

Saturday, March 3, 2012

This is a chance to show and sell your freshly created scenes of Key West.
Compete for honors, ribbons and cash prizes ($150, $100, $50, plus 3 Honorable Mentions!).
Work in any painting or drawing medium which you created outdoors that day on stamped canvases or paper will be accepted.
Information packets will be handed out upon registration. For work to be judged, it must also be available for sale.
Works may be displayed with frames to fit stamped canvases- but will not effect judging.
Unframed stretched canvases and paper materials without mats will be stamped at 9 am…. and then the painting begins!
Open to all current members. If you haven’t had a chance, you may choose to join us the day of the competition as well.
$20 per person to participate, which includes up to 2 works per person which will be judged and placed on display.
