THANK YOU for making this year's Boulder County Plein Air Event a HUGE SUCCESS!

Over 80 artists created art in the great outdoors around Boulder County for a week and the results are amazing. Even if you missed our live event at Chautauqua's Auditorium last month, you can still browse and bid on beautiful works of plein air art.
