The Sheridan Arts Foundation is pleased to announce its 2018 roster of participating Telluride Plein Air artists for the 15th annual event scheduled for June 29-July 5, 2018. Featuring 23 renowned artists, this year’s artists represent a broad range of mediums (oil, pastels, watercolor) who hail from as far away as Shanghai, China.
Each year the top selling artists and our Artist Choice First Place winning artist are invited back. Suzie Baker won Artist Choice this year and was also one of our top sellers along with Wayne McKenzie, David Dallison, Christine Lashley, Mat Barber Kennedy and Bill Meuser.
A jury of respected professionals in the art world selected the remaining participating artists and selected a mix of old and new faces to Telluride Plein Air.
Friends of the Telluride Plein Air will remember Kirsten Anderson, Jill Banks, Carl Bretzke, Patricia Duncan, Kathleen Lanzoni, John Lasater IV, Rita Pacheco, Edward Reed, Jason Sacran and Richard Sneary from previous festivals.
The event will be invigorated with new talent selected on the quality of their work submitted through the jury process: Jason Bowen, David Diaz, Jody Kauflin, Alison Menke, Randy Pitts, Christina Willey and JieWei Zhou.
