On July 28th, 2006, over twenty of the Northwest’s most well known painters will be arriving
in Missoula to begin five days of Plein Aire paintings of the Bitterroot Valley, Lindbergh Lake, Mission, and Blackfoot Valleys. This event has been a huge success in previous years.
We are obtaining a maximum of twenty sponsors for this event. Unlike many sponsorships
this isn’t just a donation, but rather a chance to place a down payment on a piece of
original artwork, done right before your eyes. By committing $250, $500, or $1,000, you
secure the right to choose first among the artwork done on location during the five day
stretch, plus the artists’ new studio work. Sponsors attend a private reception, Wednesday,
August 2nd, were they view the show two days prior to the public opening. What an oppo-
rtunity! Your committment will entitle you to:
>Purchase priority according to the level of sponsorship: ie. $1,000 sponsors select first.
>Attendance at the celebrity picnic dinner after the private reception.
>Two additional guest passes for the reception & picnic dinner; guests are eligible to
purchase paintings after the sponsors (reminder, this is before it is open to the public).
>First right to be a sponsor in 2007.
