Boulder County Plein Air Event

Plein Air Preview Exhibit

June 3rd - July 12th, 2021

Pieces from “Plein Air” artists will be on display at the Museum of Boulder from June 3rd through July 12th, 2021. Two “Preview Exhibits” will provide a taste of what’s to come from artists who are competing during the event week. Find these at the Museum of Boulder (the Muse) and R Gallery, Boulder. From June 4th through the 10th, artists will be out & about with their easels, paint and other materials, capturing scenes of their choosing. Visualize the Impressionists and other artists who have created art on location through the ages!

Celebrate “Plein Air Art” this June with Open Studios’ fun, laid-back and inclusive event, the 2021 Boulder County Plein Art Event, June 4 – 11. Colorado artists and students (15 and older) of any ability level are welcome to paint, draw, embroider, sculpt and more to capture mountain, plain and urban scenes in Boulder County en plein air.
