Eligibility:

The PleinAir Salon $33,000 Art Competition is a monthly online competition consisting of 19 categories. We award over $33,000 each year for this competition. The Annual Grand Prize winner receives a check for $15,000 and is featured on the cover of PleinAir Magazine. We award an additional $6,500 to the annual winners and award $1,100 monthly to the top three winners of each competition as well as a People’s Choice Award. Each of the 23 monthly winners will be automatically entered into the Annual Competition. The annual awards are presented live at the Plein Air Convention & Expo each spring.

 

Because this competition is created by PleinAir magazine, which features not only plein air paintings, but also studio paintings, all types of paintings are eligible and do not need to have been completed in plein air. As we know, many studio paintings start with plein air sketches, and many plein air painters paint figures and still life. Our interest is in rewarding great paintings.

What is art? Where is it heading? 

Is art still in the hands of artists and art dealers or it has become a tool for the crypto speculators?

 

The world is changing, everything becomes more virtual including art and in the process a lot of speculators are trying to twist things in their own interest like in the case of NFT. 

 

The crypto speculators are trying to make this the new “COOL” but what is so cool about it? 

 

Art is food for our souls, If they want this to be the new truth then they should start doing everything virtually, for example start eating virtual food or maybe get drunk with virtual alcohol, if they do this then by all means we will start to believe in their vision. 

 

As for us- galleries, artists, collectors… should we let hundreds of years of artistic refinement in the hands of the crypto speculators that don’t even know the difference between renaissance and contemporary? 

 

What about the painters, photographers, print makers, sculptors, performers and all the other artists who create real work, work that we can touch, smell, feel… should we give up on them for the sake of a speculative game? 

No thanks!!! 

 

NFT should be embraced as a new medium/tool  like we always did along the way with a lot of other things but it shouldn’t be allowed to take over! 

 

If it does take over then an entire generation of artists and their works will vanish in thin air making way for the crypto speculators and their pyramid. 

 

Should we allow this to happen on our watch?

 

The aim of this exhibition is to promote real art made by real artists! 

 

This Exhibition Will Take Place At Our Space In Tower Bridge Area, London. 

 

The space is located in one of most iconic places in the world and the most visited place in the whole UK.

Artwork executed in any other medium other than those noted will NOT be accepted. NO Giclees or reproductions of original works will be accepted. All subject matter is included. Artists may submit up to 2 works for consideration for both the in-gallery exhibit and full virtual gallery of works on our website. All submissions will be considered. All styles and aesthetics are accepted, from traditional to contemporary. McCord Gallery selections are based on creativity, quality of artistry and originality as represented in the images submitted. The McCord Gallery & Cultural Center is a non-profit art gallery open to everyone; as such, the content of submissions should be appropriate for all viewers.
