Plein Air Painting Competition

Ohio Plein Air Society members who will be painting 'plein air' or 'fresh air' throughout Licking County.  If you didn't join us last year for this exquisite event, don't miss it this year!  Sunbear Studios and Gallery is honored to be hosting the Society's Annual Competition the first week of October.  Painters will be arriving from all over Ohio as well as other states to compete for coveted awards and prizes.  Alexandria, Granville, and Licking County locations will again be the beautiful subject matter for these painters, with the final judging and show/sale taking place on October 5 from 11:00 A.M to 3:00 P.M. in front of Sunbear's gallery.  Come on the 5th and feel the excitement as painters display the results of their work done completely on location during the event.  Awards will be given at 2:00 pm.  Find beautiful and meaningful works for your own collection!  See or the attachments for more information.

Sunbear is happy to have Jennifer and Dick Kinsley performing with hammered dulcimer and acoustic guitar!  This duo from Granville, Ohio plays Roots Music (traditional, folk, Americana, and music of the British Isles), including tunes of the Shakers and Irish harpists. They've performed for many events and concerts, such as Granville's Candlelight Walking Tour and Lancaster's Frontier Spirit 1799.  They'll be outdoors in front of the gallery from 12 noon to 2 P.M., the best time to come!  Light refreshments will be served in the gallery and you are welcome to browse both the gallery and antique shop downstairs.  
You can find the details of the entire event attached, including the Pre-competition Event "Granville Portraits en Plein Air" taking place October 1 & 2. 
Don't miss any of this lovely fall event at Sunbear and in Granville and enjoy work by some of the country's leading plein air painters!
