2022 plein air festival judge

R. Gregory Summers – Artist

We are so fortunate to have this distinguished plein air artist join our festival as Judge in 2022!

Greg Summers has been a professional artist since 1979. Beginning his professional career at Hallmark Cards Inc. as a Master Engraver, he now paints primarily “en plein air”. According to Greg, “I am inspired by creation, and driven by the experience.”

Greg has served as Vice President of the Greater Kansas City Artists Association, co-founded the Missouri Valley Impressionist Society and the Brush Creek Art Walk in Kansas City, and is an elected member of the Salmagundi Art Club, as well as a signature member of the American Impressionist Society and the Outdoor Painter Society.

“We go outdoors to enjoy the land, or stay inside to avoid it. It is I, an outdoor artist that brings the outside in.”
