  1. Hi,
    I’m just double checking that I am all signed up for the 2014 Plein Air contest in Shorewood. My friend said she received a confirmation, but I haven’t seen one in my emails. I thought I went on line somewhere and my name was listed as one of the artists. Just checking; I love this event!
