The 6th Annual Scotchmans Plein Air Paint Out comes to Hope, Idaho, the first weekend of October (4th-6th). Two dozen artists will fan out in and around the Wilderness on Friday and Saturday, returning with fresh oil and watercolor creations to be framed, hung, viewed, judged, and sold on Sunday afternoon from 1-4PM at the Hope Marketplace.
Marilyn McIntyre, who won the first place prize last year, will judge this year’s event, and the artists will also choose their favorite painting. In addition, it is well worth the drive to Hope this year to look through the Folio, an inspirational creation by Marilyn at last year’s show.
Each artist generously donated a painting with a favored quotation that assembled together have created an unique book that beautifully and eloquently shows their passion for nature and our treasured wilderness. On behalf of the artists, Marilyn will donate the completed Folio to the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness at 1:30PM prior to the awarding of the prizes and the opening of the show – don’t miss it!
