Plein Air Exhibit, Reception and Auction

Join Chautauqua and Open Studios at the Chautauqua auditorium for the Plein Air Event art exhibit and auction, complete with a VIP reception. Artists from around the region will show artwork they’ve created out-of-doors during a week-long plein air competition. All the art is of scenes from around Boulder County. Meet the artists at the reception at 4:00, view the exhibit of between 100 and 200 pieces of original art, and cast your bids for your favorite scenes in the silent auction and during a fun-filled live auction at 5:15.

There will be a number of awards offered for all mediums and a number of subjects, including special awards for Best Flatiron Image and Best Historic Chautauqua Image.

Presented by Open Studios and Colorado Chautauqua, with major sponsorship from the Boulder Convention and Visitors Bureau and Create Boulder. More details are available at
