Plein Air for the Park

ABOUT THE 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 7, and display a selection of their newly created work at the impressive Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor’s Center in Moose starting Wednesday, July 16. 40% of the proceeds from the show will benefit the Grand Teton Association and support their ongoing educational, interpretive, and scientific programs in GTNP.
