Coastal Autumn Plein Air Paint Out
September 21, 2018 - September 30, 2018
About the Exhibition
Artists participating in this exhibition were juried in based upon a review of their previous plein air work. From designated locations in the Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach and Bethany Beach areas each had up to five days to paint scenes that embody the natural beauty or culture of our coastal community. The artists will then choose their two best works to be entered into the exhibition and for consideration of an award by Awards Judge Brian Murphy.
