Brushes With Nature - NEWS Plein Air Program

Brushes With Nature 2021

Brushes with Nature continues to offer opportunities for meeting in the open spaces in New England to the members of the New England Watercolor Society through 2021.The Brushes with Nature program was realized to foster fellowship while painting in the fresh air. While practicing social distancing we will continue our events in some of New England's most beautiful locations. The painting sessions will be just for fun – no instruction – to sharpen your skills and share our work. There is the added opportunity to exhibit works done over the summer and fall in the annual brushes with Nature exhibition at our new Gallery in Plymouth MA in November and December 2021.

Information!

In response to the new social distancing norms we recognize that not everyone will want to meet as a group and so we encourage everyone to paint outside - locally, and safely. All works done in Plein air will be acceptable for entry into the Brushes with Nature Exhibition to be held at the Plymouth Center for the Arts during November/December.

This show is exclusively open to artists who participated in the 2021 Brushes With Nature series. The submitted artwork must have been completed during one of the scheduled Plein air outings, or started in the field and completed in the studio.

Participating artists, please email NEWS Smarter Entry administrator for your exclusive Entry Code if you haven't already received an email with the code: jenrid2g@gmail.com

Information!

This year all works must be framed (see NEWS framing requirements on the NEWS website).  Entries will be juried through Smarter Entry with a maximum framed outside dimension of 24 inches in width.  Shipped works accepted.  Three pieces will receive "Awards of Distinction," with cash prizes.

The Scheduled Dates, Locations, and the local Coordinator's name and e-mail are shown below. Parking and facilities are available at each of these places.  The individual venues will be posted on the NEWS web site, as well as any updates to this full schedule will be posted as needed.
