Paint the Ozarks - Plein Air Paint Out


Fri Sep 09 2022 at 09:00 am to Sun Sep 11 2022 at 04:00 pm


Spiva Center for the Arts | Joplin, MO

Join regional artists as they paint outdoors in plein air, capturing the beauty of Joplin - its bluffs and banks along Shoal Creek, the power of water flowing over Grand Falls, and the allure of our parks and our historic buildings and homes. Painting in plein air is about quickly capturing a scene in the changing light and shadows of the day.
Workshop with Larry DeGraff: Sept. 9, 9am-4pm
24-hour paint-out competition: Sept. 10, 9am - Sept. 11, 4pm (judging at 4pm)
On Friday, September 9, award winning painter Larry DeGraff of Kansas City will serve as juror and present a pre-competition workshop from 9am-4pm, with a registration fee of $120. Location of the workshop will be Mercy Park (Shelter #1, near pond).
Fee for the paint-out is $35 ($25 for members of Spiva Center for the Arts and the Joplin Regional Artists Coalition). Finished works will be presented in a Paint the Ozarks exhibition at Spiva Center for the Arts during the remainder of September.
More than $1,500 in cash prizes will be awarded in the competition, including The Steve & Diana Graddy $500 Purchase Prize for one of the competitors.
