Upcoming dis and dats (Sprinkles)

Well, this is Pua Maunu, contributing to the blog. Just some info of upcoming Plein Rein events:
  • April 30th is the submission deadline for an exhibit at the Juneau Arts and Culture center sometime between September 2008 and August 2009. Cristine Crooks has once again put together a wonderful proposal with the title" Rain and Shine". She has used photos of older work, so if you have something new, get it to her asap, and at least by this Friday, 4/25.
  • May 1 through 10- A group of Plein Rein painters will paint their way to Northeastern Washington via the Columbia Gorge. One of their highlights will be visiting Paul's mom on the farm! More details to follow.
  • May 2 through 30, Pua Maunu is the featured artist at Annie Kaills. You may visit the Annie Kaills website at to read about the new work.
  • July 10 - 13, 2008: Atlin Arts Festival. Sharon Lobaugh has generously invited the Plein Rein painters to come to Atlin to paint and take part in the Atlin Arts Festival. Pua is the point contact person coordinating between Sharon and the Plein Rein Painters, so please contact her if you are interested. There has been some interest from about 3 people thus far. . .

Plein Rein Art Retreat 2008

We had AMAZING weather at our retreat on March 28, 29 and 30, 2008 at the Jubilee Cabin at the Shrine of St. Therese here in Juneau. Not only clear, sharp days and nights, but we got to celebrate Mary Pat's birthday.

Here are a few pictures of the weekend.
