20th annual Telluride Plein Air

Join us June 28-July 4, 2023 for the 20th annual Telluride Plein Air. Twenty-six nationally recognized plein air artists travel to Telluride to capture the historic charm of our town and the natural beauty of the surrounding areas. The event culminates in a three-day long exhibition and sale of their artwork on July 2-4 with 40% of sales going to the Sheridan Arts Foundation, the non-profit that owns and operates the historic Sheridan Opera House. This festival is our largest fundraiser of the summer.

The Telluride Plein Air Festival has become an indispensable part of Telluride’s Independence Day festivities, allowing locals and tourists alike to observe some of the nation’s top plein air artists at work.
