Up to 12 Plein Air painters will be selected to paint from July 2 – July 6, 2017, with a wet paint sale and gala the evening of July 7. Art will be exhibited and for sale through August 19.

Selected artists will be notified by February 15, 2017. During July 2 – July 6, 2017, the selected artists will be painting at Cedar Breaks National Monument, Kolob Canyon (part of Zion National Park) or anywhere in Iron County, Utah. Completed art will be exhibited salon style and sold at SUMA. Each artist will have a wall that is 8’ wide and 9’ tall.
