PLEIN AIR FESTIVAL PARTICIPANTS NAMED


PLEIN AIR FESTIVAL PARTICIPANTS NAMED
The participants in this year’s Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival – Atlantic Edition have been selected.

Twenty of Atlantic Canada’s best plein air (outdoor painting) artists, comprised of eight invited returnees from last year’s online-only event plus 12 others selected by a jurying process this year, will make their way to Parrsboro, NS for the June 17-20 event, painting some of the most picturesque scenes in Canada along the Minas Basin and Bay of Fundy shores.

Since 2017, Parrsboro Creative has annually attracted 30 artists from across North America, but last year, due to COVID-19, the event was changed to an online-only format. This year, again with the virus in mind, organizers determined to showcase the best artists from within the ‘Atlantic Bubble’.

We are thrilled with the quantity and quality of the submissions this year,” said Jocelyn Li, Parrsboro Creative’s executive director. “The jurors had to make some hard choices.”

Of course, virus-related lockdown regulations may cause the event to be rescheduled entirely.

Nothing is certain where the virus is concerned so we’ve tried to plan for every eventuality,” said Li, “recognizing that some Atlantic borders may be closed or restricted in ways that make it difficult for some artists to attend. We can only hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.

As discouraging as recent provincial announcements may be, we remain realistic (with a dash of optimism) and will adapt as necessary to showcase plein air while keeping (the artists) and our community safe.”

Nova Scotian artists competing this year are: Sharon Fox Cranston, Lunenburg; Christopher Gorey, Ingonish; Anne Wedler and Gail Sutherland, Bedford; Andy MacLean, Kate Brown-Georgallas and Adam Tragakis, Antigonish; Susan Paterson, Dartmouth; Donald Pentz, Halifax; Joy Snihur Wyatt Laking, Bass River; Denise Lanterman, Fall River; Grant Lounsbury, Mcphersons Mills; Kim Aerts, Prospect; Michel Doucet, Weymouth; Oliver Hatton, Middle LaHave; Alexander Koltakov, Hubley; and Wesley Lowe, Bridgewater.

New Brunswick artists competing are: Simone Ritter and Theresa MacKnight, St. Andrews; and Louise Hicks, Sackville.

They’ll be competing for cash and product prizes worth $7,500, along with recognition as being among the best in their field and the opportunity to sell their work both on-site and online. Ian Muncaster, director of Zwicker’s Gallery in Halifax, will be their judge, announcing the winners at a Gala and Exhibition June 19 at 8 pm at The Hall in Parrsboro.

Li said it is only with the support of sponsors and supporters that Parrsboro Creative is able to host the event again this year.

Visitors and artists are encouraged to visit the new home page for the plein air festival announcing the judge and artists: parrsborocreative.com/pipaf-atlantic.
