Arts Culture Cat 1200X600

The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents the 12th annual Telluride Plein Air Quick Draw competition, a two hour painting contest in downtown Telluride. Come see our 31 nationally recognized artists in action. The Quick Draw will be followed by event judging and live auction in Elks Park with prices starting at just $400. 40 percent of profits go to the Sheridan Arts Foundation, the non-profit that owns and operates the historic Sheridan Opera House. All proceeds raised will help keep the Sheridan Opera House a vital part of the Telluride community.
