An Exhibition Featuring Artists’ Works from the Monuments and Canyons Plein Air Event
Sponsored by Patricia Feinberg
Get ready for the Monuments and Canyons Exhibition of Art!
This exhibit is the follow-up exhibit to the Monuments and Canyons Plein Air event which was held in October of 2022. Over 20 artists were invited at that time to paint for a week in Colorado National Monument as well as the surrounding areas including McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area and Ruby Horsethief Canyon.
This exhibit, which takes place 5 months later, allows the artists time to reflect on their experiences in the Grand Valley, and to create larger and more resolved paintings in the studio. Many of these artists live outside of Colorado and are sending their newly created pieces in for this exhibition.
A portion of the proceeds from both events go to help Colorado National Monument Association (CNMA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, fund Colorado National Monument’s education programs, youth programs, scientific research, and National Park Service (NPS) special projects. CNMA has helped in protecting Western Colorado’s geologic gem for almost 60 years and will continue for future generations.
Participating artists include Mark Akins, Cliff Austin, Teri Capp, Philip Carlton, Loren Eakins, Monica Esposito, Laura Gable, Cedar Keshet, Nancy Lewis, Dan Logé, John Lintott, Laura Martinez-Bianco, Betsy Menand, Charles Morris, Mike Ray, Virginia Unseld, and Anita Winter.
