SANTA FE PLEIN AIR FIESTA QUICK DRAW
Come see the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico paint in the Railyard Plaza
Plein Air Painters of New Mexico and Sorrel Sky Gallery are proud to host the sixth Santa Fe Plein Air Fiesta! Fifty talented artists from across the United States are invited to this juried competition to spend a week painting, en plein air (in open air), Santa Fe and the neighboring Northern New Mexico area. The Land of Enchantment is a legendary paradise for painters. Bathed in the diverse beauty and unparalleled light of northern New Mexico, these artists have four days to capture the unique subjects of the southwest, such as colorful rock formations, cobalt skies, and meandering adobe walls.
A final “Quick Draw” event in the Santa Fe Railyard wraps up the painting week before an exhibition of their work opens at Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe, on March 13 (5-7:30 PM). This show represents three paintings by each artist – two of the best of their week’s plein air work and a third studio or plein air piece. The exhibition will run from March 13-28, 2020.
