Weather or Not Plein Air Exhibition | October 2018

PORTSMOUTH – The New Hampshire Art Association will showcase its plein air members’ works and the winners of the annual Wet Paint-Out Weekend held in July, during the month of October in the main gallery of the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery.

The annual Wet Paint-Out Weekend is open to NHAA members and non-members, and is organized by NHAA member Lennie Mullaney.

The event was generously sponsored by Mullaney, Ree Katrak and R.M. Davis. It is held rain or shine.

This year’s show was juried by Brett Gamache who teaches painting at the Cambridge Studio School, Montserrat College of Art and the Massachusetts College of Art. He exhibits at the George Marshall Store Gallery in York, Maine.

Winners of this year’s contest are Russel Whitten (first place), Todd Bonita (second place), and Nathan Mann (third place). Honorable mentions went to Ellen Hopkins Fountain, Monica Cote and Barbara Stevens Adams.

During the warmer months, the NHAA holds weekly plein air meet-ups happen on Tuesday mornings in New Hampshire or southern Maine, and this is a chance to see some of the work created this year.
