Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters
August 13 - 16, 2015Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, CO
The Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters (RMPAP), in partnership with Rocky Mountain National Park and The Rocky Mountain Conservancy, will hold a special art show and sale August 13-16, 2015, at the historic Stanley Hotel Concert Hall. This event is the companion exhibition to last fall’s Centennial Celebration paint-out and show, and is part of the Rocky Mountain National Park Centennial, which is a year long commemoration and celebration of RMNP’s first century as one of the country’s singular and outstanding national parks. The Centennial runs from September 4, 2014 to September 4, 2015. This event gathers both studio and plein air paintings from 22 nationally recognized professional artists hailing from all over the U.S. The works they send will all have been created during RMNP’s Centennial Year and will all feature the Park as their subject matter. Each painting will also be accompanied by a commemorative certificate, signed by RMNP Superintendent Vaughn Baker, attesting to its provenance as part of the Park’s Centennial.
The new works created will be displayed at the Stanley Hotel Concert Hall starting Thursday, August 13 at 6 PM. A Gala Reception will be held at 6 PM that evening. The show will run through Sunday, August 16 at 3 PM.
