EnPleinAirTEXAS is a week long painting competition held in San Angelo, Texas. Artist are expected to paint in plein air, meaning painting outside in real time. 34 artists are selected and at the end of the week, there is a large scale art exhibit. Cash prizes are awarded and artists have the opportunity to sell their works during the exhibit and throughout the entire week.

The artists are selected and the competition is judged by nationally respected jurors and judges in the field of art.  The event is run by an accredited nationally awarded museum, The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.  Awards given by a museum are more highly regarded among all artists.  Their paintings are exhibited and are for sale during the final weekend in the Stables Building at Fort Concho, a National Historic Landmark built in 1868 and the original home of the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. 

Volunteers committed to detail and generous community support have allowed us to offer substantial prize money, singular events and access to painting sites found nowhere else in the world. 

During the week, artists are invited to historic private ranches to spend the day and paint as well as be welcomed by the ranchers themselves with their West Texas hospitality.

Requirements include a $40 application fee, complete application, and 3 plein air paintings of their work.

You must be 18 years of age. Artwork submitted must have also be painted en plein air.
