The TECHE Project has partnered with the Shadows-on-the-Teche Plein Air Painting Competition to recognize the Bayou Teche as an amazing source of inspiration and scenery for highly accomplished painters from around the United States. The Plein Competition takes place March 9 through 15. Throughout competition week, artists paint throughout seven parishes in the Acadiana region that includes a variety of viewscapes and a special painting category for scenes of the Bayou Teche has been added for this year’s competition.
The TECHE Project; Margaret and Jeff Simon; and Mary Ubinas-Dahlquist and David Dahlquist will award a $1,000 first place award for the winning Bayou Teche painting.
The public awards ceremony and fine arts sale will occur Friday, March 15, 2019, 6:30PM at The Shadows Visitor Center, 320 E. Main Street, New Iberia, LA. The event is free and open to the public.
