From the Desk of Jason Prigge Art
MANITOWOC- Manitowoc’s own pleinairist, national award-winning artist Jason Prigge, won Best in Show at the Lake Moon Plein Festival hosted by the Cedarburg Art Museum and Concordia University on Saturday, August 9. Located on the sweeping bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan, the view was inspiring. The juried Best in Show Award was bestowed upon Jason Prigge for his 16x20 piece titled Rolling Greens. Featuring the lush bluffs ascending from the Lake Michigan shoreline, the winning piece was completed on location with easel perched on the shoreline riprap. Executed in an impressionist style using juicy colors and bold brushstrokes, the painting was completed over a two hour time span.
The Best in Show at Lake Moon comes only weeks after Prigge’s First Place People’s Choice Award at Door County Plein Air Festival Dockside Quick Paint. Prigge will next compete at the Milwaukee Domes Art Festival on August 16.
