Description

The Wild Rivers Plein Air Festival will be held fro July 16-21, 2019 in Questa, New Mexico and the surrounding area. The festival features the landscapes of the Wild Rivers Recreational Area, which is part of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, historical northern New Mexico towns and the meadows and streams of the Northern Enchanted Circle byway.

This event is designed to promote the beauty of the area by bringing together local, regional and international artists to express their painted interpretations of the landscape. The paint-out festival is open to all skill levels. Artists will have the opportunity to paint for four days, attend demos and workshops and to participate in a quick draw. Artist social activities will also be highlighted including an artist dinner and an artist paintings swap luncheon. Completed work will be shown at the Brass Rail Theater in Red River where an opening and awards celebration will take place. The categories of this years show will be Landscape (a focus on the natural beauty of the area), Architecture (a focus on the culture and history of the area) Wild Rivers Recreation Area (to be completed inside the WIld Rivers park) and Best Experimental (utilizing non-traditional approaches to the act of plein air painting). There will also be a Artist Choice Award and a People's Choice Award.
