An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
SEPA Plein air painters is based in the south-east of Ireland.
In addition to regular paintouts throughout the year, the group also hosts an annual plein air festival called "Art in the Open" which has become Europe's largest. It is an open entry (ie. unjuried) event with 7 days of painting at a variety of locations - coastal scenes, harbours, historic castles, rural villages with cottages and in small towns around Wexford County. There are also half-day workshops on location with some of the best plein air artists, plus life-drawing, critique sessions in the evening plus BBQ, music and other social events.
Participants may submit up to 3 works for exhibition and awards although display of work is by selection panel and not guaranteed.
