The Show Must Go On! Despite all the challenges of this year due to the pandemic, LPAPA has determined that “ the show must go on! ” We will not let our Artists nor our Collectors down. And so, we are going forward with a virtual online plein air invitational. We invite you to “join us” in Laguna Beach and enjoy art gallery exhibitions, sales and auctions, watch our nationally recognized artists at work, hear “Plein Talks” and participate in special activities. We will bring all the excitement directly to you, in the comfort of your own home. This year, LPAPA is making it possible for you to have a unique opportunity to add an important work of art to your collection at a great price while supporting the Artists and LPAPA! Because this is a challenging year for us all, we are making every effort to encourage art sales to benefit the Artists and Collectors alike. All artwork (with the exception of the Quick Draw) will be sold unframed on our auction site with a starting bid of 80% of the full unframed retail price. If you love a painting, Collectors will be able to purchase immediately at the 100% Buy-Now price. The choice is yours! A special feature of this year’s invitational will be the Sunday, October 4 th , Treasure Island Virtual Quick Draw Painting Competition, where all 25 artists will be simultaneously painting live- streaming online. The auction prices for these unframed paintings will have a starting bid of just 50% of the full retail price. What a fabulous opportunity to potentially snag a great painting at a great price! Please note that all Invitational artwork will be priced and sold unframed and will be shipped, at the buyer’s expense, directly to your home. This allows the Collector to enjoy lower prices and make his or her own framing decision. However, if you prefer, Randy Higbee of King of Frame is generously offering LPAPA Invitational Collectors a 40% discount on framing! LPAPA is intent on not just surviving the pandemic but rising to the challenge and thriving in this environment! We are finding new ways to sustain our nonprofit, engage our Supporters and Collectors, and help our Artists so they can support themselves and their families. We hope that you will join us and support our 2020 Invitational! Together we will keep LPAPA Strong! Thank you for being part of Laguna’s Plein Air Legacy & Tradition!
