What is In Plein Sight?
A series of indoor and outdoor art events, Oct. 4 to 9, celebrating the wild beauty of the publicly owned foothills and mountain landscapes in Jefferson County, to raise funds for PLAN Jeffco.
Using paint, canvas, brush and imagination, 27 professional artists from around the region and out of state will take inspiration from the scenic county open space parks, Oct. 4-8. Bring the family, enjoy the fall colors and watch the artists as they capture the glory of October in Colorado.
The results will be available for purchase, Oct. 8 and 9, at an art show and sale at the Community Center in Golden. Dozens of original, freshly painted scenes will be available at a wide range of prices, a rare opportunity to bring some of the beauty of open lands to home or office.
The kick-off event is a reception for the opening of a Private Art Collection, 5:30 to 7 p.m., Sept. 19, at the Jefferson County Administration Building. The collection features spectacular paintings by local artists using a variety of mediums, including water colors, oils and acrylics. The works, capturing Jeffco Open Space in various seasons, have never before been shown in public.
