LPAPA’s Waterworks Juried Show accepts artwork created both in plein air and in studio, however, the top “Best in Show” award is only eligible for a work created in plein air and the award winning artist will also receive a coveted “golden ticket” invitation to participate in LPAPA’s 23rd Annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational, October 2 – 10, 2021.
This annual watercolor show is made possible with the support of the Joe Hanks Van Cleave Foundation for the Arts and honors the family’s matriarch Joe Hanks Van Cleave (1920-2003) who preferred painting with transparent watercolor and often exhibited as a member of the Laguna Beach Art Association (1957-1969) in their gallery (now the Laguna Art Museum), and her big one-woman show in July 1962.
To address the challenges imposed by the pandemic, LPAPA will continue to present its annual juried art shows online and in an auction format until it is feasible to return to physical exhibits and receptions at its “LPAPA in Residence” Gallery home at the Forest & Ocean Gallery in the heart of Laguna’s art district.
Proceeds from the sale of artwork benefits the participating artists and nonprofit LPAPA, and helps sustain LPAPA’s Mission and LPAPA in Residence Gallery. LPAPA’s mission is dedicated to painting the landscape, preserving Laguna’s artistic legacy and promoting the plein air painting tradition. LPAPA strives to enhance the livelihood of its artist members and inspire the next generation of plein air painters!
Join LPAPA’s celebration, be part of the tradition!
