We are beginning to plan our 2018 Colorado National Monument Plein Air event. If you are interested in being involved, we are actively seeking volunteers, event sponsors, purchase award sponsors and host families for participating artists. Please contact our art coordinator John Lintott, email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help!
The 2017 Colorado National Monument Plein Air event is in the books! For our first year, we had 22 artists from all over Colorado come to participate. Artists were seen throughout Colorado National Monument during the week of Oct 3-7 as they painted on site, creating wonderful pieces of art that reflected their translations of the beautiful scenery of the monument. Our judge this year was John David Phillips, an incredible artist living in the Grand Valley. His work can be seen at: www.johndavidphillips.com.
Below you will find the results of the award ceremony and photos of the event! All photos courtesy of our incredible volunteer Christine Gearhart.
Honorable Mentions: Nancy Lewis, Amy Gibbs, Nancy Hutchison, Mark Akins
