Paint Webster is a plein air outdoor painting competition held on the second Saturday in May. Open to both amateurs and professionals, the competition encourages artists of all ages to capture on canvas the outdoor spaces of the charming Webster Groves community. At the end of the day, artists can submit their works to compete for more than $2,000 in awards. A reception is held for the community to meet the artists and view the paintings. Artists can have their works hung at the Old Orchard Gallery, in Webster Groves, for the week following the event.

Jurors for Paint Webster M. Shawn Cornell and Robin Hirsch-Steinhoff. M. Shawn Cornell is a plein air painter by the strictest terms. He completes all paintings 100% on location — no indoor touch-up. Neither cutting edge nor deep in metaphorical meaning, his paintings are scenes and stories about brief moments he experiences and witnesses during his excursions. It’s a brief moment of life captured on canvas.
Robin Hirsch-Steinhoff is the artisitic director at Art St. Louis. She works on behalf of St. Louis regional artists by helping develop their careers, exhibiting their work & finding exhibition opportunities for them, and providing network opportunities.
