Plein Air on the Yellowstone

Plein Air on the Yellowstone, a week-long paint-out sponsored by the Livingston Center for Art and Culture, culminated in an exhibit, on display for the Livingston Art Walk on Friday, August 22 from 5:30 to 8:00 PM. With thirty artists from Montana, Utah, Idaho, Minnesota, and Texas, this 6th annual event was the largest and most successful yet!   The artists checked in over the weekend, and had their blank canvasses stamped with the date to show that all submitted works were created during the week of the paint-out.

All works were created “en plein air”, which means that the artists painted outdoors, onsite, attempting to capture a moment in time. The artists met the challenges of changing light conditions, wind, rain, and sun. The artists painted at the Livingston Farmer’s Market, allowing the community to enjoy watching the paintings as they progressed. The week’s events also included a plein air painting demonstration by Gardiner artist, Shirl Ireland

Each artist turned in their best three wet paintings Friday morning for a juried exhibit, with Loretta Domaszewski of Bozeman judging.  Prizes were awarded as follows:
