Please join the St. Louis Artists' Guild for a Fall Plein Air competition at Chaumette Winery. Enjoy the spectacular
scenery and camaraderie among artists while testing your painting or drawing talents. Acclaimed regional plein air artist Billyo O'Donnell will be painting alongside participating artists (but will not be competing). At the end of the day, O'Donnell and two other jurors from Chaumette will jury the completed pieces and present prizes.

Awards and Prizes

  • Best of Show: An overnight stay in one of Chaumette’s luxury villas (1 bedroom use) or villa suites on a Sunday through Thursday night. Expires November 1st, 2014.
  • 1st Prize: $300
  • 2nd Prize: $200
  • 3rd Prize: $100


The competition will begin after check-in. Artists must start with a blank surface — absolutely nothing pre-painted, pre-drawn, or in any way begun. Artists only have until 3:00 p.m. to complete their artwork. Any artistic medium except photography, computer-generated images, or sculpture is allowed. Submitted artwork can be sold at the Reception, with the artist receiving 65% and the Guild taking a 35% commission. The competition is open to artists ages 18 and over.

Please register online below, or register on-site the day of the event.
