Frisco Commons Park and the Grove at the Commons:  8000 McKinney Rd, Frisco TX

Main Juror: 

Maria Haag grew up between North Dakota and Kansas, and currently lives in Dallas, Texas. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas and her Master of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting from the University of North Texas. She received the Charles and Margaret Pollack art purchase award from the Mulvane Museum in Topeka, Kansas, and in 2017, 2018, and 2019 she participated in Dallas in Prizzi, a community inspired mural project in Prizzi, Sicily. She has participated in group shows at the New Orleans Contemporary Art Center, Project Gallery V in New York, Austin College in Sherman, TX, Art Center of the Bluegrass in Danville, KY, and Kansas City Artists Coalition, among others. Solo exhibitions include the Cora Stafford Gallery in Denton, TX, Arts Fort Worth in Fort Worth, TX, and Pencil on Paper Gallery in Dallas, TX. Every day, she feels caught in a cycle of destruction and transformation and translates that sensation into her work. She captures bodies hovering between decay and transformation, broken images whirling through a maelstrom of memory. The physical surfaces she creates mirror the transitions of physical and spiritual bodies. Their fragility is reflected in physically and digitally broken objects, crusted with layers of paint, charcoal, and collage.

 

Art that Speaks to Me Juror:  Frisco City Councilman, Bill Woodard

Plein Air painting dates back to the French impressionists who left their studios to paint “in the open air.” Plein Air painting is exhilarating and challenging for artists who attempt to quickly capture the light and colors of the scene before them. The French term "plein air" means out of doors and refers to the practice of painting entire finished pieces out of doors rather than in a studio.

 

There will be a welcome reception for artisits as well as a final reception open to the public during which wet paint competition art pieces will also be sold.  Awards presentation for the overall three-day artwork and for wet paint competition will take place during the final reception on 4/27. Each day completed Plein Air artwork will be exhibited at The Grove at the Commons and will be available for purchase.  All artwork completed during this competition must be for sale and cannot leave with collector or artists until end of evening public awards reception 4/27/24.
