WELCOME to the 2011 edition of Plein Air magazine
WELCOME to the 2011 edition of Plein Air magazine, the magazine artists, suppliers, schools, and collectors have been anticipating for years. The new version of this popular quarterly magazine is back in both a print and digital form, and it is supported by an active website because …
♣ The number of artists, organizations, workshops, events, and collectors has increased dramatically.
♣ The Internet makes it easier to learn, join, promote, and buy works of art created directly from nature.
♣ Online social networks help artists, dealers, suppliers, teachers, and collectors find out where artists are painting, what work they just finished, and how they can make important connections.
♣ New products are available for using a wider variety of painting media, changing the consistency and drying time of paints, maintaining professional standards, traveling lighter and safer, dealing with variable conditions, working under extreme conditions, and having more fun!
The printed magazine version of Plein Air will feature beautiful reproductions of artwork, resources for artists and collectors, step-by-step demonstrations, directories of organizations and events, profiles of top artists of today and yesterday, and recommendations of equipment and supplies.
The digital e-magazine version of Plein Air will have all those features PLUS BONUS CONTENT not available in the print edition, including additional pages and interactive components such as videos of painters on location, audio slide shows of well-equipped studios and collector events, tours of public and private collections, and links to helpful resources. The e-magazine will be available online, by e-mail, and on iPads.
The Plein Air website will be updated daily and will contain valuable content from the print and digital magazines, PLUS galleries of members’ artwork, forums to discuss opportunities and resources, critiques to help aspiring artists, contests for gaining national exposure, videos of products and events, and news of what is happening right now!
The Plein Air e-letter will be distributed to our audience once weekly and will contain information on events, plein air news, and timely information of interest to the plein air community.
