Telluride Plein Air Festival
The Sheridan Arts Foundation (SAF) hosts 26 nationally recognized plein air artists in Telluride, Colo. for the 12th annual Telluride Plein Air. These artists will spend a week painting outside capturing the light, color and unique character of this breathtaking region as well as the town of Telluride. Artists typically paint eight to 20 pieces, culminating in almost 300 works to view and purchase over the course of the sale (only eight pieces may be displayed at one time). The event is a fundraiser for the SAF, the non-profit that owns and operates the historic Sheridan Opera House.
