Telluride Plein Air Quick Draw & Live Auction

IMG 7745

As part of the Sheridan Arts Foundation's 11th annual Telluride Plein Air, this 120-minute painting competition, along Telluride’s main street, provides the public an opportunity to view artists in action and purchase paintings at a special price. The Quick Draw competition is open only to the Telluride Plein Air artists. The resulting artwork will be judged outside of the Sheridan Opera House at 12:15 p.m. with the public sale and live auction to follow. This year we’ll award a crowd favorite and judges from the Ah Haa School for the Arts will award a judged favorite. The winners will receive a cash award.
