As summer begins to wane, it is time to look toward the opportunities that linger near the end of this muggy season. There are many brass rings for you to reach for as August transitions to September before the leaves fall and the world goes dormant for a time. Summer can be a tricky time in any line of work, many people are away for periods of time vacationing and in general life slows to a crawl. But in the art world, things are churning all the time and this is no time to sit back and relax. Rather it is a time to jump on opportunities and make sure you are squared for the coming months. Read on for a few deadlines at the end of August
Manifest Gallery in Ohio offers an international call for artists to submit their Plein Air paintings with a twist.

Manifest asks what the process of Plein Air does for art itself. For more complete details and to submit your own work, visit the website. Deadline for submissions is August 31.
