Bloomin’ Lewes Plein Air Painting Event Winners Announced
The Bloomin’ Lewes Celebration of Public Gardens and Art on August 17, which was sponsored by Lewes in Bloom and Art in Bloom (a project of Lewes in Bloom) and their enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers, culminated in the Plein Air Painting awards for Best in Show, Best Use of Color, Honorable Mention, and People’s Choice Awards for the Plein Air Painting Event.
Plein air artists painted in several Lewes parks in the morning. They did not know ahead of time which garden they would be assigned to; it was determined by a drawing. After arriving at their designated spot at 8:00 a.m., they painted for the next four hours. At noon, the painters were required to stop painting, frame their paintings, and present them at Zwaanendael Park for the People’s Choice selection and professional judging by Dennis Young, a painter who has painted in many plein air events in the mid-Atlantic area, Florida and California. His paintings are in the homes of private and municipal offices.
Winners of the event were Jim Rehak, Best in Show, Siobhan Duggan, People’s Choice and Best Use of Color, and Diane Laird, Honorable Mention.
