The Working Artists Forum (WAF), under the auspices of the annual Plein Air Easton (PAE) Competition and Arts Festival, sponsors the art exhibit Local Color during Plein Air Easton. Each year artists who are either members of WAF or who reside in the Delmarva area apply to a jurying process to enter this well-attended, prestigious show held each year during Plein Air Easton.
The participating artists are those who have been juried into the show. This year’s juror was Zufar Bikbov who was the second-place winner of Plein Air Easton 2022. A native of Russia, Zufar was influenced by his father’s unrealized dream to become a professional artist. He trained from the age of 9 at Zelenodolsk Youth Art School in Kazan in the Russian realism tradition. His passion for oil painting and the dynamic nature of the plein air art form has led him to avidly explore first Russian and then American landscape for over three decades.
