The 2018 Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational featured 50 of the nation’s top award winning plein air artists who are dedicated to painting the landscape and preserving Laguna’s plein air painting legacy and tradition. During the 9-day plein air art festival, the invited artists painted in and around Laguna Beach and the surrounding communities, coastlines, and canyons. There were several opportunities to purchase original artwork created during the week, with the artists submitting at the end of the week what they considered to be their best three paintings for the awards judging. The artists competed for over $40,000 in cash and prizes that included the coveted $10,000 “Best in Show”.
