ABOUT THE 5th ANNUAL EVENT
Grand Teton Association is once again partnering with Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters to present an exclusive “wet painting” show and sale as a fundraiser and to increase art awareness in Grand Teton National Park.
Participating artists will arrive with blank canvases and paint plein-air (outside in open air) in the Jackson Hole and GTNP area beginning July 4, 2016 and display a selection of their newly created work at the impressive Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor’s Center in Moose starting Wednesday, July 13 from 7-9PM. 40% of the proceeds from the show will benefit the Grand Teton Association and support their ongoing educational, interpretive, and scientific programs in GTNP.
