Plein Air Festival

  • 807 Lincoln Ave., Steamboat Springs, CO, 80487
  • Overview

    Head to Steamboat on Saturday, September 22, 2018, when artists from near and far will convene in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for the SAM 2018 Plein Air and Quick Draw Events. The Steamboat Art Museum is proud to host this event during the time of year when the trees and mountains are at their peak with fall foliage.

    What makes this Plein Air event unique is the friendly atmosphere of Steamboat, with easy access to historical ranches, wild rivers, and abundant aspen groves. This non-juried event not only provides opportunities for emerging artists to develop their career, but there will also be several nationally known painters.

    The Steamboat Art Museum will host a week-long Plein Air event from September 22-29, during the time of year when the trees and mountains are at their peak with fall foliage. Events include an opening reception, artist gatherings, and a quick draw with a silent auction. The quick draw and silent auction will be held on Saturday, September 29 at an alternate location. Works will hang in the Steamboat Art Museum through early November.  

    All artwork in the exhibit is for sale and a great way for visitors to buy an original piece that showcases the beauty of our Valley in the summer. The seasoned collector will know that these will be quality pieces created by emerging artists, and a good entry level price for beginning collectors.
