7th Annual EnPleinAirTEXAS Competition

Date: Oct 17 - Oct 24, 2020
The historic buildings of San Angelo, Texas, the sites and splendors that are sprinkled throughout the community, and the Concho River, which flows right through downtown, are magi-cally transformed through the eyes of visiting artists during the week of EnPleinAirTEXAS. This lively annual event is one of the premier plein air competitions in the U.S., attracting a number of award-winning artists.
This year’s juror, Maryland artist Sara Linda Poly, selected 30 artist applicants to join the four top prize-winners from 2019. And Tim Newton, an art collector and the publisher of Western Art & Architecture, is serving as the 2020 awards judge.

Throughout the weeklong event, artists are treated to several days of painting on private West Texas ranches, rewarding viewers with their varied interpreta-tions of distinctive vistas that aren’t often witnessed by outsiders. Other plein air paintings highlight the Western origins of San Angelo, its life-giving Concho River, and the unexpected beauty of the International Waterlily Gardens, among other visuals. The scheduled plein air sites include the Downtown Paint-Out on October 17 and the Waterlily Gardens Paint-Out on October 20. Along with that, the exhibit, sale, and artist demos are held October 22 to 24 at the Fort Concho Historic Landmark.
