Call to ALL Artists!
Plein Air Painting Event

September 25 – 28, 2019

Sequoia Gallery + Studios in Hillsboro, Oregon, is proud to continue as host to the annual Plein Air @ Washington County for the fifth year. October is Hillsboro Arts Month and this event is the perfect opener to a month of dozens of community arts activities, shows, workshops and social events.

Capturing moments in time from farm to forest to downtown at various outdoor venues, artists are invited to paint their chosen scenery from Sept 25-28. The 2019 Plein Air competition is a 4 day open air painting opportunity for artists to have time to explore the beauty of Washington County, create their masterpieces and enter to win impressive awards.

The highlight of the event, the artists reception and awards presentation, will be held in downtown Hillsboro at Sequoia Gallery on the evening of Saturday Sept. 28. The juror will be Catherine Gill.


After the Plein Air Awards Show and sale on Saturday, Sept. 28, all entries will continue to be on exhibit and available at Sequoia Gallery + Studios throughout October, in historic downtown Hillsboro.
