Greetings!

This year spring has arrived a bit early in Crested Butte.  We have already seen the aspens leaf out and there are even some early wildflowers!  Our painters have been out capturing the spring scenes.  We are looking forward to seeing you here and sharing outstanding, landscape paintings at the same 409 Third Street location.

For this summer, we’ve created events that will encourage a dialogue between you and our painters as they are working in our inspiring landscapes.  Join us for ArtWalk Evenings, a July exhibition by NY based painter, Chad Smith, Conversations en Plein Air with gallery artists, an informal talk with Shaun Horne about Historic and Contemporary Trends in Plein Air Painting,  a Crested Butte Wildflower Festival poster signing event with winning artist Susiehyer, and Flower painting with Nicholas Reti.  Please see the side bar for more details.

We are not producing the Crested Butte Plein Air Invitational this summer.  We are planning for its return.

When you are next in Crested Butte, stop in and see the latest paintings from our 17 artists from across the country.

Happy Spring,

Shaun, Dawn, Ivy, and Sarah
