Meet the Artists, In Plein Sight 2016

Early Autumn for Plan Jeffco InPleinSight script

We are pleased to announce that after issuing a call for artists and conducting a national search, our upcoming In Plein Sight event will feature a total of 27 artists descending upon Jeffco Open Spaces this October.

In Plein Sight is the first plein air painting event to be held in Jeffco’s Open Space parks. This free, public exhibition for all ages to enjoy will feature a series of events October 4 – 8 in South Valley Park, Mount Falcon Park, Crown Hill Park, White Ranch Park and along the Clear Creek Trail in Golden. The public is invited to take a hike or stroll to observe the painters as they work, and this incredible week of art-making will culminate in an art show and sale in Golden October 8 – 9.
