2017 Plein Air for the Park
ABOUT THE SIXTH ANNUAL EVENT
The Grand Teton Association and Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters present their annual fine art show and sale. Forty percent (40%) of the proceeds from the show benefit the Grand Teton Association which provides support for educational, interpretive and scientific programs within Grand Teton National Park.
Participating artists will begin to arrive Wednesday July 5th and paint plein-air (outside in open air) in Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park. A selection of their “wet paintings” will be on display at the Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor’s Center in Moose on Wednesday July 12 from 7:00pm-9:00pm.
