Year 225 Plein Air Contest
September 17 @ 9:00 am - September 18 @ 3:00 pm$20
As part of West Windsor’s 225th birthday celebrations occurring throughout 2022, the Historical Society of West Windsor and the West Windsor Arts Council have teamed up to host a “Year 225” Plein Air Contest! Artists are invited to choose from a select list of historic West Windsor sites to paint on site the weekend of September 17 – 18. Artists may complete and submit up to two paintings which will be juried for awards on Sunday, September 18.
The first-place winner will receive a $500 Purchase Award sponsored by the Historical Society of West Windsor, and their work will become part of the Historical Society’s permanent collection. Cash prizes of $100 (second place) and $50 (third place) will also be awarded. All paintings entered will be photographed and proudly displayed on the Historical Society’s and West Windsor Arts Council’s social media platforms and websites.
Pre-registration is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. You will be asked whether you are “purchasing” 1 or 2 entries (both amounts are $20) and will also be required to input your full name, address, phone number, and email address before finalizing your order.
