This year will be the 8th Annual Plein Air Fest, held at the National Museum of Wildlife Art on June 15, 2019. During this event, more than 50 invited artists are given one day to create new masterpieces en plein air. They paint from the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Sculpture Trail, with stupendous views overlooking the National Elk Refuge. Collectors are invited to browse and bid on the fresh artworks, which will be sold by silent bid.

  1. That’s me in the center of the first photo from 2013… that’s a surprise to see. I am looking forward to being there this year to do the judging. It’s a fun event and wonderful painting venue for the artists and patrons of the Museum.
