2017 Open Members Show

The Open Members Show was held at the South Windsor Library, February, 2017. There were over 50 paintings in the show, which were juried for $900 in prizes.

Jack Montmeat, who juried the show, writes: ““Thank you to the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society for both allowing me to preview this excellent exhibition of artwork of the beauty of the natural world, and for asking me to choose some works to be given awards. As I was walking through the gallery at the South Windsor Library, I was asking myself, what did the pieces that I chose to be awarded have in common? And I saw clearly that the artists’ depiction and rendering of the effects of water stood out.

See the winners of the show along with Montmeat’s descriptions of their work.

Honorable Mentions

In Elizabeth Rhoades’ “Passing Fjords,” and Jane Penfield’s “Rushing,” we see water in the torrent of action, with frothing bubbles-both works rendering this effect in the delicate medium of pastel.
