Artists Workshop Plein Air Event Show and Sale
Coming July 1, 2017
The Artists Workshop holds this year’s Plein Air Event from June 28–July 1, 2017. Participating artists paint on location for three days. On July 1, they present their work for a show, sale and awards on the front lawn of the Art Presence Art Center in Jacksonville, Oregon.
Awards day begins with an exciting quick-paint competition from 10 am to noon. Then the awards ceremony takes place at 2:30 pm. Over 30 artists participate in this year’s plein air event, therefore a wide range of plein air painting styles will be available to interested collectors. Jurors are Willo Balfrey and Richard McKinley, so awards are decided by two of the Valley’s most highly respected artists!
The event takes place alongside the July reception for our new art exhibit, so be sure to come inside and view the art works in the gallery too!

The Artist’s Workshop was founded in the Rogue Valley of southern Oregon in 1979 by Jacksonville artist Elaine Witteveen. Now the Artists’ Workshop of Southern Oregon, the group has grown to an organization with over 40 artists working in a wide range of mediums.
Artist’s Workshop of Southern Oregon members interested in plein-air painting meet weekly at “paint-outs” at locations throughout the Rogue Valley. Indoor drawing and painting sessions, often featuring a live model, are available during inclement weather.
Each August, Artist’s Workshop of Southern Oregon holds its annual art show and sale. The show is open to all members.
