For the fourth year, members of the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters assembled in Grand Teton National Park to paint for a competition and fundraiser. Some dazzling pieces took prizes this year.
Collectors favor this event, which benefits the Grand Teton Association. The judge this year was Jim Wilcox. He picked Stephen C. Datz’s “Approaching Storm” for the Best of Show award, and tapped Marc Hanson for Best Body of Work.
