Open air painting event benefits open spaces

Posted

Colorado artists spent Sept. 10-15 in Jeffco Open Space parks painting en plein air to promote preservation efforts and demonstrate the value of open space lands.

Put on by PLAN Jeffco, the In Plein Sight festival featured 27 artists who painted in Lair o’ the Bear Park in Idledale, Alderfer/Three Sisters Park and Elk Meadow Park in Evergreen, and Centennial Cone Park and along Clear Creek in Golden. Artists went to the park of their choosing on Sept. 11. The culminating event was a gallery show, where the public could buy the artists’ paintings, on Sept. 16 at the Golden Community Center, 1470 10th St.

Plein air painting is when an artist reproduces the actual visual conditions seen at the time of the painting. Colorado Community Media visited the artists painting in Centennial Cone Park on Sept. 14.
