Carrying forward the tradition of painting from life

 

Gil DellingerThe Plein-Air Painters of America is a small group of accomplished professionals who are dedicated to painting on-location. Since organizing in 1986 to exhibit wet-paint artworks in Catalina, PAPA put plein-air painting on the national stage, spawning seedlings that have bloomed across the country.

EXHIBITIONS & SALES: PAPA is once again partnering with the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy for an exhibition and sale at the California Center for the Arts,  in March 2015, and we are scheduled to exhibit at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, Dennis, MA, in June 2015.

VIDEOS: Six videos in the PAPA DVD Series are now available. Each tackles challenges specific to a painting experience in the outdoors, whether architecture, a street scene or seascape. Explore the possibilities on our video page.

NEWSLETTER & SOCIAL MEDIA: PAPA members are engaged in premier invitational, museum, and gallery shows across the country. Keep abreast of their activities in our current newsletter or stay in daily touch on PAPA's Facebook page.

SIGN UP to get periodic email updates about our PAPA's recent news. And come back often to see what's new!

Gil Dellinger, PAPA President
