The Johnson Heritage Post Art Gallery has partnered with Outdoor Painters of Minnesota (OPM) to coordinate the 2018 Plein Air Grand Marais!

PLEIN AIR GRAND MARAIS has been an annual tradition bringing outdoor painters to Lake Superior's North Shore and the community of Grand Marais for more than a decade.  With great excitement, the Johnson Heritage Post  is collaborating with Outdoor Painters of Minnesota to continue the event in Grand Marais for the 2018 competition year and beyond. We have already filled the competition with 75 talented artists - some of whom are nationally renowned!
