Outdoor Creations Plein Air Art Show

Boulder County Parks & Open Space hosted its fourth juried en plein air art exhibit in 2018 and plans to host another exhibit in 2021. En plein air art is the act of creating art from observation in the outdoors.

Next Exhibit in 2021

The next en plen air art exhibit will not be held until 2021 because a woodworking exhibit featuring black walnut wood harvested from the Ramey Homestead will be held in 2020.

Photography and painting sessions are scheduled throughout the summer and posted on the Hikes & Events Calendar.
