ZION NATIONAL PARK — Twenty-four artists will celebrate the heritage of art in Zion National Park during its ninth annual Plein Air Art Invitational Nov. 6-12.
During the week, the artists — who work in oil, pastel, watercolor and acrylic — will give free in-park art demonstrations at the Human History Museum patio and the Grotto. In addition, free evening lectures will be presented at the Zion Lodge Auditorium and the Canyon Community Center in Springdale.
A live paint out and sale on the great lawn at Zion Lodge will be held on Nov. 11, with art exhibits and a silent auction also part of the week’s proceedings.Comment on this story
The artists were selected through an application and review process conducted by a selection committee representing local art galleries, art historians, park staff and art patrons.
The work represented by the invited artists is diverse in tone, technique and medium — with art available for all levels of buyers and collectors.
Proceeds from the sale of the studio pieces and the art produced during the week will benefit the park’s education and youth projects. A full schedule of events and the artist bios are now available at zionpark.org.
