"Fair Trade" Whidbey Island Plein Air, Best of Show

Whidbey Island Plein Air, Best of Show

Been so busy with family trips, plein air events and all kinds of activities that the blog has been neglected again for most of the summer and there are still more events to come! Looking forward to things slowing down later this fall but first want to give you a heads up on what's coming up in September.

I have been doing a lot of art events with my son Maury this summer. We just finished up the Whidbey Island Plein Air event hosted by the Pacific Northwest Art School in Coupeville, WA. The weather was perfect and we both had a blast painting beautiful Whidbey Island and hanging out with artist friends. Sorry I didn't let y'all know about it before it happened but like I said...It's been busy!!  =]

Between us we garnered 2 Honorable Mentions a Best of Show ( pictured above) and sold 4 paintings. Not too bad! 

Starting Sept. 5th we will be sharing the featured artist wall at The Front Street Gallery in Poulsbo.

 "Painting from Life" Father and Son,  Robin and Maury Weiss is the title of the exhibition and will display many of the plein air paintings we have been doing together and on our own around the Pacific Northwest. The show opens on the Second Saturday Artwalk in Poulsbo, Sept 10th at 5pm


SEPTEMBER 1, 2022 - OCTOBER 3, 2022

At the same time we will both be participating in an exciting new plein air painting competition hosted by the Cole Gallery in Edmonds Washington,  which will take place from September 1st thru the 12th and culminate with an artists reception and awards ceremony on the 15th of Sept. Be sure to stop by the Cole Gallery any time in September to see work by many of the artists but don't miss the reception on the 15th when all the work accepted into the show will be on display and available for purchase. Check in on instagram and facebook to see paintings being created in real time and to purchase ahead of the show.

Art in the Woods  Studio Tour

To wrap up, be sure to put Arts in the Woods on your calendar. Always the second weekend in November the North Kitsap Studio tour is the best in the Northwest and attracts art lovers and collectors from around the region. This will be my 11th year participating at the Knowles Studio on Noll Rd. in Poulsbo. Hope to see you there!!
