The Umpqua Valley Arts Association in Roseburg is in the midst of its annual Umpqua Plein Air (French:”en plein air“) event, which celebrates the spectacular and wild landscape in central Oregon. Our own Dennis Hellawell (Lot#66) and Ken Knowles (Lot#156) were two of the artists entered in the event. They spent Sept 13-15 outdoors painting landscapes in the local Douglas County area, followed by judging on Sept 16. The resulting paintings, including two of Dennis’ which received Awards of Distinction, are on public exhibit through Oct 24 at the Umpqua Valley Arts Association, 1624 W. Harvard Ave., Roseburg, Oregon 97471. Enter from Stewart Park Road, just north of W. Harvard Ave.
