About this event

Plein Air in the Parks is a collaborative event, presented this year by Wyoming State Parks Wyoming Arts Council and Cheyenne Artist Guild.

Whether participating in Cheyenne or Sheridan or at both events, artists can look forward to a weekend of outdoor, on location plein air painting with a concluding art show, sale, and reception that offers cash prizes to top participants. Artists also have the option of selling pieces produced at the events.

The competition will be judged anonymously by a panel comprised those with an arts background, representatives from the community, and individuals familiar with Curt Gowdy State Park. The Best in Show Cash Award will be $1,000, while 2nd and 3rd place prizes go for $500 and $250 respectively. Registration includes up to two entries in the judged competition. Mediums may include Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Pastel, Graphite, or other medium. The art show, sale, and reception will be held at Curt Gowdy Sunday, September 18 from 1 to 3 pm. It is free and open to the public.

A select number of campsites have been set aside at Curt Gowdy for registered artists. Sites must be reserved in advance by calling the Park at 307-632-7946 and overnight and day use fees apply. The deadline to reserve one of these sites is September 3.
