join the
CONNECTICUT PLEIN AIR PAINTERS SOCIETY

Are you a plein air painter who would like to join a group of like-minded artists? Do you see plein air painting as an important next step in your personal development?  We invite you to join the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society.

The Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society is dedicated to encourage and support excellence in painting directly from nature and to provide regular opportunities for members to paint together. We seek venues to enhance members’ skill and reputation. In addition, we want to raise public awareness of the beauty found in nature through plein air painting and participation in events that further the preservation of nature and the landscape.

ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP

Any artist can become a member and is eligible to participate in paint-outs and exhibitions, including member exhibitions. Paint-outs from April through October allow you to network with other plein air painters. There will be regular newsletters with up to date information on Society activities, exhibitions and paint-out opportunities. In return for these benefits, each member must participate in at least three events per year (such as paint-outs, exhibits or fund-raisers) and volunteer his or her time to complete one or more tasks for the benefit of the society.

ELECTED ARTIST MEMBERSHIP

Our purpose at this level of membership is to recognize artists who demonstrate a high degree of professionalism in their work and who are committed to work together to promote plein air painting as a profession. We plan to organize special exhibition opportunities and programs to promote plein air painting and the professional recognition of our elected artist members. In return, we expect Elected Artist Members to invest their time and resources – above and beyond basic membership – to make these special opportunities and programs a reality. All individuals who wish to apply for Elected Artist Membership must have an Elected Artist sponsor. Applications for Elected Artist Membership are due by November 1st.
