Plein Air Grand Marais is open for registration! You may choose to apply for the Competition or Open Class. The non-refundable application fee for all participants is $45.
All registered artists may sign up for Mini-Workshops, participate in daily paint-outs, attend artists' socials and other scheduled activities. Open Class painters may hang one painting in the Open Class exhibit and compete for the Art On The Rocks Award in the Quick Paint. The best-in-show award winner of the Open Class Exhibit will be invited to be a Competition Artist in next year's PAGM.
Competition applicants have two categories: Invitational and Juried. If you are a Mini-Workshop Instructor or otherwise received a formal invitation from OPM to compete in the 2021 PAGM Competition, please confirm your attendance by checking the appropriate box below and submitting this form with $45 application fee. If you are applying to be juried in to the Competition, please check the appropriate box below and upload two JPEG images of your best plein air paintings for consideration by our selection committee.
Cancellations by Competition Artists: Please let us know if, after confirming registration, you are unable to attend PAGM for any reason. We will have a waiting list for Juried Competition applicants not selected by our jurying committee. This will help ensure a full Competition while creating opportunities for emerging artists. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
