Plein Aire painter Matt Sterbenz
"I seek to achieve a greater understanding of the landscape that surrounds me. As an avid hiker, I desire to convey our earth from vantage points that many would otherwise overlook. Rather than simply portraying a landscape, I strive to paint the experience of being outdoors. Referencing work that I have created outside allows me to produce paintings in the studio that have a lighter, more atmospheric feel to them. It is with this painting process that I hope to share my outdoors experience with others."

Guidelines for Artist of The Month:
An "Artist of the Month" is selected every month from August to April, and open to all members of the Guild. Artists are limited to one framed work each Month.
Artists awarded Artists of the Month are not eligible for further monthly competition. All Artists of the Month are automatically entered in the Artist of the Year Event, held in May.
Artist of the Year will then be chosen from those qualifying artists. (If you have sold the awarded work you may substitute another work for the May event.)
Paint and Participate for your chance to be recognized as the next Artist of the Month!
