Oil Painters of America Plein Air Paint-Out

The national organization, Oil Painters of America, has selected Evergreen Fine Art Gallery as the site for their Twenty-first Annual National Art Exhibition of Traditional Oils.  It's the first time this prestigious art show has been in Colorado. 

As part of the festivities, Southwest Art Magazine sponsored a paint-out for OPA members last Wednesday.  In addition to the Exhibition inside the gallery, they had a tent show for all the plein air paintings created at the event.  I created 2 quick oil paintings and both of them sold! 


Evergreen Fine Art Gallery is at 3042 Evergreen Parkway (303-679-3610)  http://www.evergreenfineart.com/.  The Exhibition runs through July 21.  This is a must see show if you can get there!

Hi Valorie. I'm glad to hear that you did well at the OPA Paint Out. I had planned to participate too but I had to be out of town that week. It sounds like it was a good experience.

Hi, David!
Sorry you couldn't make it. There were 100 artists there that day. We were pampered with breakfast, a barbeque lunch with live entertainment, and a wine and cheese reception at the end. Totally unexpected. I hope you can make the next one!
