2020 Juried Members Exhibition
Each year the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society offers an Annual Juried Member Show at various Connecticut galleries. This year, due to Covid, our show is presented in a beautifully displayed online gallery.
We are so pleased to showcase our CPAPS members finest work from local Connecticut and New England Scenes to distant locations our painters have traveled to.
Our Juror this year is Sergio Roffo, an award-winning New England landscape painter from Scituate, MA. Sergio is an elected member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Elected Fellow of the American Society of Marine Artists and bestowed the artistic distinction and honor of Copley Master.
Congratulations to all of our award-winners and members who entered the show. The awards are listed below with the Juror’s comments. We would like to thank Mr. Roffo for his time and expertise selecting the winners and for our generous sponsors who so kindly support CPAPS.
