The Plein Air Painters of New Mex­ico will cel­e­brate its 10th an­nual Na­tional Juried Mem­bers Ex­hi­bi­tion at Sor­rel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mex­ico, be­gin­ning Novem­ber 2.

Dozens of artists will have works on view and for pur­chase through Novem­ber 25. An open­ing re­cep­tion will take place Novem­ber 3, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Artists will be vy­ing for $15,000 in awards and prizes. Award cat­e­gories in­clude best of show, noc­turne, oil me­dia, wet me­dia, dry me­dia, fig­ure in land­scape and a pop­u­lar artists’ choice award. The show will fea­ture about 150 works of art. This year’s awards judge will be Western painter Ray Roberts, a Sig­na­ture Mem­ber of Plein Air Painters of Amer­ica.

In ad­di­tion to the open­ing night re­cep­tion, an artist demo will also take place on Novem­ber 3, fol­lowed by a Roberts work­shop from Novem­ber 4 through 6.

“There’s a cer­tain en­ergy or pulse that can be seen and felt when view­ing the works of plein air artists,” says Sor­rel Sky owner Shanan Camp­bell Wells. “It’s as if you’re stand­ing right be­side the artist as they pause and mo­men­tar­ily step back, ob­serv­ing the scene be­fore them.”

Some of the award win­ners from last year’s show in­clude Lisa Flynn’s Tram­pas Adobe, a view of a farm­house framed by dis­tant moun­tains; Ch­eryl Koen’s Back­yard Sun­rise, fea­tur­ing or­ange, pinks and vi­o­lets in a bril­liant sky; Ce­cilia Robert­son’s Grace in the Desert, a view of plateau with col­or­ful cliffs; and Tobi Cle­ment’s cloud­scape Day Greets Night. Last year’s best of show win­ner was Peter Grab, who painted Snow on the San­gres, fea­tur­ing a view of dis­tant moun­tains above a brushy desert scene.
