Paint the Aspens Welcomes 35 Artists
Paint the Aspens will welcome 35 artists to the White Mountains to paint the fall landscape beginning Saturday.The artists will paint on location (plein air) through the week, and prepare their work for the reception and judging Oct. 9, from 3 - 7 pm at the High Country Art Gallery in Pinetop. NEAFAA (the Northeastern Arizona Fine Art Association) created this year's event in conjunction with the Arizona Plein Air Painters Association. Since the paintings were created during the week, some may still be wet. "This is the largest field of painters in the history of Paint the Aspens," noted Co-Chair Gwen Meyer, whose gallery, Joyous Lake, hosted the show from 2005 through 2008. "We have top quality artists coming from all over Arizona, and as far west as California..." Gabor Svagrik, judge for the event, will award almost $1,000 in cash prizes, and hold a workshop the following Sunday morning, Oct. 10, for those interested in learning plein air painting. Additional prizes will be awarded by the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside and the artists. The public will also be invited to participate in a "People's Choice" award. The High Country Art Gallery is located at 592 W. White Mountain Blvd., next to Paradise Anglers. Information about the event and, after they are created, paintings from the show, can be found at highcountryartgallery.com. The show closes Oct. 24.
