Announcing the 2014 Crested Butte PLEIN AIR Invitational!



GRAND OPENING July 12th 2014.

The Crested Butte Plein Air Invitational 2014 is designed to rank among the finest pure landscape painting exhibits in the United States.  Our goal is to collect a roster of artists that will make the Invitational a destination art exhibit.  The event will occur over the course of the month leading up to the exhibit openings Friday, July 11th, and Saturday, July 12th, 2014 at the Oh-Be-Joyful Gallery in historic downtown Crested Butte, Colorado.

The core of the event will be the skills and reputation of twenty-five “Invited” landscape painters, selected specifically for their demonstrated and recognized plein air skill. These twenty-five painters will include a quantity of America’s best plein air painters.  Invitees are invited to come to Crested Butte to make plein air paintings for a week to ten days between June 10th and July 10th.  The event will include a Jury Class (10 additional painters selected through jury), and an Open Class, free and open to anyone.  A month of gallery-led excursions and workshops will be offered.  For patrons, there will be a limited-access Patrons Preview on Friday July 11th, before the Grand Opening for the public on Saturday July 12th.  To receive the most up-to-date information on how to participate, please sign up for our newsletter or go to
