Some secrets are harder to keep than others.
I’ve been sitting on this news for a while and I’m super excited to announce that I’ve been accepted into the Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival 2022!
When I sent along my application, I was thinking it might be a long shot (have you seen the work that gets produced in this event?) but since it takes place in Nova Scotia, in the very least my entry fee would support a worthwhile organization and amazing event. So why not.
I was over the moon to receive news of my acceptance to PIPAF 2022. If you heard a gargantuan yelp of joy earlier this year - it was me.
Over the years, I’ve traveled a fair bit for art workshops and events so to have an international event of this calibre in my home province amazes me and warms my heart.
In total, there are 30 artists juried into the five day event. Artists hail from all over North America — Nova Scotia, Ontario, New Brunswick, Quebec, British Columbia, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and California. Collectively, work from this group spans the globe, including all of North America as well as France, Russia and Italy and probably more locations. Many of the artists are award winners from previous years at PIPAF as well as other plein air events.
The resumes are impressive.
The talent is real.
The Judge for the event is Chantal Julien of Quebec and is a former “Best in Show” winner at PIPAF.
The Honorary Chair is William (Bill) Rogers of Antigonish. If you’re from Nova Scotia you probably know of Bill and his beautiful artwork. Bill is the co-founder of PIPAF.
This is going to be a really neat event and wonderful group of people to be part of. Plein air painting brings out the best in artists.
Visit ParrsboroCreative.com, to learn more about all the people who put this annual event together along the ancient shores of the Bay of Fundy.
This event is now in its sixth year.
I can’t wait.
Looking forward to you postings, Mary Ann.
This is wonderful Mary Ann. Enjoy your time in Parrsboro!
