FINALIST Parliament House Plein Air Prize 2009

Venue : Sydney

On : 01-10-2009


The NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize is an annual event and is recongised by plein air artists throughout Australia. The term ‘en plein air’ refers to the practice of painting out of doors, in direct engagement with nature, where the transitory effects of light can be observed and recorded. Contemporary Australian artists paint ‘en plein air’ both in the bush and the city. The NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize encourages artists to embrace the tradition and feel of ‘plein air’ to create new art works depicting subjects in the beautiful state of NSW.
