PSC Western Slope, Sabrina Stiles Workshop
June 1, 2023 to June 3, 2023
Glade Park Community Center, Glade Park, CO
June 1-3 at the Glade Park Community Center, Glade Park, CO
Cost is between $270.00 - $285.00 for three days
12 person max. 

Primarily a contemporary impressionist artist creating works on paper, Sabrina Stiles draws inspiration from the beautiful landscape near her home in Colorado. Her work often crosses boundaries between realism and abstraction. Whether it's interpreting the way the light falls on an old barn, the mystery of a nocturne or the subtle beauty of a hazy morning, her goal is to capture the feeling or mood of the scene. Stiles is an award winning artist. Her work has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine, American Art Collector, The Artists Magazine, The Pastel Journal, Western Art & Architecture, Northlight Books and is in private collections throughout the country. " I enjoy asking "What if...?" every day, the excitement of facing a blank surface and the anticipation of what it will become. My hope is that my paintings will evoke a feeling of connection to a time and place that resonates with others." ~

We're happy to welcome Doug Dawson as our awards judge and look forward to seeing your beautiful paintings.

Deadline for entries is July 20, 2023, so gather some of your best work or let your inspiration run wild and paint something new. This is not a juried show, so it's a great time to be daring and bold! So..….ready, set, PAINT!

Grand Junction, Colorado
Registration is now open for the Doug Dawson 2-day workshop, August 4th and 5th, 2023

Doug Dawson will be teaching a two-day pastel workshop on the Western Slope in association with the PSC Members' Show. The workshop will be held at the Glade Park Community Center, which is located at 1411 S. 16 ½ Road in Glade Park.

This workshop will be an indoor event, and Doug's description of the topics that will be covered include the following: how to achieve color harmony, creating exciting color, the use of color thumbnails, approaches to under-painting, separating space into foreground and background, using edges to suggest texture, and using the concept of screens to painting vegetation. There will be plenty of time to paint and it should be an enjoyable experience for all, in an informal and relaxed setting.

Cost of the workshop will be $260 ($250 to Doug and $10 for the student's share of the venue rental).

To register, please call or email Susie Roehm at, 970-778-8044, or Deb Mallory at, 970-245-6168.
Crested Butte Plein Air Invitational 2023
August 12, 2023 to August 27, 2023
Crested Butte, CO
Crested Butte is a special place, being among the most beautiful mountain painting locations in the United States. Crested Butte has reasonable roads extending into a wide variety of pristine backcountry areas. The Elk Mountain Range, one of the most significant and high ridges in the 48 states, passes within ten miles of Crested Butte. Numerous other lesser ridges surround Crested Butte, providing an endless array of top shelf painting options. Also Crested Butte has the most picturesque downtown in Colorado, full of brightly colored original mining architecture.

In addition, Crested Butte has an excellent ski area, which over time has collected many second homeowners and Crested Butte lovers who are also highly qualified art patrons. I have had a gallery in Crested Butte since 2007, and have sold thousands of paintings by myself and by other painters into this market.

We have some of the most accomplished landscape painters in the country leading the event as Invited artists. These include Bill Anton, Jay Moore, Josh Elliott, Ray Roberts, Carolyn Lord, Katie Odom, and Dave Santillanes, just to name a handful. The event also has an Open Artist category in which any painter can participate by submitting paintings through a free jury process. The only parameter is that the paintings need to be new and plausibly of the Crested Butte area.

The event is happening at the new and spectacular Crested Butte Center for the Arts, in the main gallery and in a large tent gallery in a rear courtyard. We will have the space to hang at least 300 paintings and will have a patron group to match.

The Invitational is a way for your painters to interact with me and my gallery, which could potentially lead to representation here and in Telluride, where I will be opening a second gallery. Crested Butte and Telluride are the two most beautiful mountain towns in Colorado with significant art markets. I need plein air painters to launch and sustain the Telluride gallery and to grow the Crested Butte gallery.

Take a look at the gallery and Invitational websites for more information.
