This year there was a huge event called Fondren en Plein Air. Artists from 4 states attended and painted their little hearts out in the little section of Jackson, MS.
Dean Blackwell and Mississippi Art Productions,LLC worked in conjunction with Courson Art Productions, LLC (AKA Dot Courson Fine Art and Workshops) to do this event. We recently changed the name to reflect both me and my husband because it's truly a partnership. I'm blessed to have my husband's help- that's why I'm able to participate and help in so many art events!
Our esteemed judges were Mississippi artist Wyatt Waters, Alabama's Craig Reynolds and Tom Pearson from the Mississippi Arts Commission.
There were many great sponsors including Plein Air Magazine- and an article written up in the Clarion Ledger.
We had a great turn out at the show!
