Plein Air painting and Alla Prima painting capture the essence of a scene, the attitude of a landscape, or the character of a moment. Most often completed in a single sitting, these works feature lively and impressionistic views, bold gestures, and impromptu mark-making. For the Plein Air and Alla Prima Showcase, we’re looking for works that characterize these techniques and capture the fleeting moment. Whether painting in plein air or alla prima, we want to see work that expresses the spontaneity and immediacy of documenting the ever-changing world. Of the Moment will be juried by Barbara Jaenicke. Jaenicke is a renowned artist, known for her light-filled landscapes and painterly, impressionist style.
