Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of the Florida panhandle as they assess the horrific damage and begin putting their lives back together after Hurricane Michael. We are confident that the resilient people of this area, along with help that will be pouring in, will repair, rebuild and eventually restore the area to once again welcome visitors to enjoy the beautiful "Forgotten Coast". As the organizers of Plein Air South, we will follow them as restoration efforts begin and will keep you posted regarding the progression of plans for our 2019 gathering.
