Plein Air Fest, Etc.

Jackson Hole | Salt to Stone

Nearly 40 invited artists are given one day to create new masterpieces en plein air (outside). They paint from the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Sculpture Trail with stupendous views overlooking the National Elk Refuge. All visitors are welcome to watch the painters, and collectors are invited to browse and bid on the fresh artworks. All proceeds will benefit the Museum and participating artists. Free event!

9 a.m.: Event Kickoff
10:30 a.m – 1:30 p.m.: Live Music from Batdorf & The Brother Wolf
11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.: Food for Purchase from Palate
12:15 – 1 p.m.: Silent Auction

Two participation categories for the artists: plein air and al fresco
The plein air category allows artists to paint any regional scene of their choice, and they may begin their painting anywhere in the vicinity. All artists will be on the Sculpture Trail by 10 a.m. to finish their piece live and in person. Al fresco is interpreted more broadly, where artists enjoy painting outside using reference photos of any subject. The “Best in Show” award winner will be picked from the plein air category, while the al fresco category is not judged.
