An Interview with the Artist – Jeff Markowsky, En Plein Air

If you’ve been to the St. Augustine Art Association gallery this month, you’ll recall seeing the oil painting above. Jeff Markowsky of Savannah, Georgia, won the $1,000 Clark & Alice Alger Best in Show Award for Ingrid at Rest, a piece that illustrates the hidden beauty of a local boatyard. Markowsky also received the PleinAir Magazine Advertising Award from the national publication for plein air painters. Markowsky worked from dawn to dusk during the 3rd Annual St. Augustine Plein Air Paint Out, producing an impressive body of work that celebrates the nation’s oldest city. Visitors can see Ingrid at Rest, along with Markowsky’s other works, in the plein air exhibit, Where Art Meets Historyon display through May 26, 2019.
