There are still many exciting events happening at the Oh Be Joyful Gallery this summer. Coming up this week and next, two of our artists will be in Crested Butte sharing their work and ideas.
First up, Susiehyer will be in town to celebrate her selection as the Wildflower Festival Poster Artist. Susie’s stunning painting was chosen last fall to represent the Festival this year. We are proud to say that the Wildflower Festival is hosting their annual “Wildflower Happy Hour” Poster Signing Event at the Oh Be Joyful Gallery. Susie will be in house signing posters between 4 and 7pm. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served. Suggested donation is $5 and all proceeds will benefit the Wildflower Festival.
Then, next Wednesday July, 19th, Oh Be Joyful Gallery Owner and Artist Shaun Horne will give a talk entitled “Historical to Contemporary Trends in Plein Air Painting”. Shaun will explore important, historical plein air painters and their influence on the contemporary plein air movement with images to accompany his points. This informal talk will take place at the Old Rock Community Library on 507 Maroon Avenue at 7PM. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP appreciated at (970)349-5936.
We hope to see you out and about in the next two weeks. Please join us in celebrating our artists and learning more about their influences, observations, and passion.
