Plein Air in the ArtHaus

About the Event

This show will be featured in the ArtHaus at the Plein Air in the Parks event taking place September 15th-17th at Curt Gowdy State Park. We are featuring plein air artwork for this show, in any medium, from any location. We are excited to showcase the broad and diverse range that the plein air format can take, and look forward to seeing all of your work!

Plein Air in the Parks is an annual event, featuring a painting and drawing competition, pairing artists with scenic locations in our state parks. Registration to participate in the actual plein air event is still open, and interested individuals may submit here.

About the ArtHaus

The ArtHaus is an innovative way to bring the community together via a mobile art space, designed to promote the arts and arts experiences to a broad audience. Created and implemented by Arts Cheyenne, this program has the flexibility to expose new art ideas, concepts, installations, visualizations, and performances to anyone in the community, allowing those who would not normally attend arts events access to them. The ArtHaus will be regularly programmed, featuring artists, workshops, special exhibitions, and other events throughout the calendar year.
