Plein Air: A Judged Exhibition

MAA is pleased to present the fifth of our 2020 members-only online exhibitions, Plein Air. Plein Air art is the capture of a scene out of doors, in its true light and composition (with artistic license, of course). Plein Air pieces can be finished in the studio, but are primarily painted on site. This show features 73 paintings by 41 artists in a variety of styles.

Our judge was Lesley Lundgren, Director of Exhibitions at the Strathmore Mansion in North Bethesda. She presented awards during an online ceremony on September 1. Watch the presentation on our YouTube Channel.

Most of the artwork in this show is available for purchase, with prices shown (not including 6% Maryland sales tax). If you are interested in making a purchase, please email
