2022 Plein Air Awards Ceremony

2022 Plein Air Competition Awards Ceremony

Celebrate the Artists! 

The Brigham City Museum of Art & History invites you to attend the 2022 Utah Plein Air Competition Awards Ceremony on Saturday, February 12 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. Plein Air competitions are community challenges for artists of any level to celebrate the beauty and wonder of the natural world. The spirit of plein air requires artists to paint their entries entirely “out in the open air” and have only a very short time in which to paint, frame, and submit their entries. Renowned plein air artist Allen Brockbank served as jurist.

Congratulations to the Winners!

The competition was open to artists of all ages, backgrounds, skills, and experience. A wintertime setting adds another layer of adventure to the spirit of plein air painting and this year’s artists painted on some of the coldest and snowiest days so far this winter. Their entries celebrate Utah in a season rarely captured through other plein air competitions.
