Telluride Plein Air Festival
Date: June 28 – July 4, 2018
Time: All Day
Location: Town of Telluride
In 2003, the Sheridan Arts Foundation first collaborated with Keith Wicks, executive director of Sonoma Plein Air, to produce the Telluride Plein Air Festival, and now a week of outdoor art has become an indispensable part of Telluride’s Independence Day festivities.
In addition to observing some of the nation’s top plein air artists at work, Telluride Plein Air Festival allows locals and tourists alike enjoy watching our two-hour quick draw competition, followed by the VIP Artist Choice Preview & Wine Tasting featuring each artists’ favorite piece of the week. The festival culminates in a three-day sale, where the artists display the work they created all week long.
