Plein Air Event Draws Awards


The North Gwinnett Arts Association, Inc. held the 3rd Biannual Plein Air Event March 31 and April 1 under clear blue skies and spring temperatures where 18 artists participated in the juried event. Participants scattered throughout the sites and woodsy trails of Suwanee to artistically interpret the surroundings of Suwanee.

Artists drew inspiration from George Pierce Park, Sims Lake, Town Center, Historic Main Street and even a chicken farm, as they painted, penciled or photographed their subjects Saturday and Sunday “En Plein Air” (out in the open air).
The event culminated in an awards reception held at Ippolito’s. All artwork will be on display and for sale in the atrium of Suwanee City Hall for the next two months. The awards were as follows:

1st Place: Vickie Johnson "Sims Lake Condo"
2nd Place: David Phillip "Spring Tree Fest

Artist's Choice: Jill Schultz-McGannon "Porch & Steeples"
