2022: 1st Annual Plein Air Contest Gallery
Artists from across Texas descended upon the Columbus area on March 23 to participate in Paint Texas! 2022. The contestants painted, framed, and displayed their works, highlighting landscapes, buildings, and historical sites in and around Columbus, inside the Live Oak Art Center. Owing to the changing light and shadows, “en plein air” is done rapidly, often in a matter of hours, and is usually on a much smaller canvas. Skilled plein air artists can quickly visualize and record their subject material. Individual techniques among the artists can vary resulting in a wide range of works that appeal to different tastes. The public is invited to view these wonderful plein air pieces and celebrate the winners of the Paint Texas! 2022 contest.
