The 2022 Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational features 35 of the nation’s top award-winning plein air artists who are dedicated to painting the landscape and preserving Laguna’s artistic legacy and plein air painting tradition. During the 9-day plein air art festival, the invited artists will paint in and around Laguna Beach and the surrounding communities, coastlines, and canyons. There will be opportunities to purchase original paintings created during the week, meet and greet with the artists, in-person outdoors, as well as opportunities to attend virtually through our live-streamed events. The artists will submit what they consider to be their best paintings at the end of the week for the awards judging for the Collectors Gala exhibition.

This artwork is a master class in "curves in perspective" while not ignoring the rest of the elaborate architectural elements. The atmospheric perspective in the desaturization of the background trees is particularly effective in lending depth to the scene. --Terry Stanley, juror
