Plein Air Honors MSP and Awards Jim Salvas

The Plein Air MSP competition is a fundraiser for our park. Each artist donates their winning artwork to FMSP, and we raffle their works at our Progressive Plates event on February 7, 2015.

Plein Air Honors MSP and Awards Jim Salvas

From Photographs of Marshall Square Park, Plein Air judged FMSP’s Jim Salvas the $500 First Place Prize Winner of the MSP Photography Competition!

Oh, what a night! Late October at our host’s Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library. Friday (10/24/2014) culminated the Monday through Thursday grueling competition. From dawn to dusk, 72 artists photographed and painted the minimum four entries from three of 13 locations.* In the photo above, there’s an artist painting the Swiss Cottage.

Jim had one of those “I-can’t-believe-this-just-happened” moments. He placed FIRST in the MSP Photography Competition and THIRD (photo below the painting) in the Overall Photography Competition!

The First Place Winner for the MSP Painting Competition is Catherine  Carney.

From Paintings of Marshall Square Park, Plein Air awarded Catherine Carney a $500 FIRST Place Prize in Painting .
