2010 Western Montana Paint Out
July 16, 2010

The Dana Gallery is hosting the eighth annual Paint Out beginning Friday, July 16th. Painting en plein air, literally "in the open air" will be twenty artists from the region . They take the challenge of working in the elements- heat, shifting light, and moving subjects for love of capturing a single moment of time in the painting. Plein air artists follow in the footsteps of the French Impressionists and the early American artists who followed the railroads west, painting scenes that informed the nation of Western grandeur.

We are obtaining a maximum of 20 patrons for the event. Unlike many sponsorships, this is not simply a donation but rather a chance to put a down payment on a piece of original artwork. By committing $500, $1000, or $2000 towards a painting, you secure the right to choose first among the work done on location during the five day period plus new studio work from the artists. Sponsors attend a private reception and purchase hour on Wednesday, July 21 prior to the opening of the show to the general public. Your commitment entitles you to the following:

*Purchase selection priority according to the level of sponsorship: i.e. $2000 sponsors select first

*Attendance at the celebratory picnic dinner after the private reception

*Two additional guests passes for the reception and picnic dinner with the artists. Guests are eligible to purchase paintings after the sponsors but before the work is open to the public

*First opportunity to be a sponsor in 2011

Please contact the gallery with any questions or to register as a Paint Out Sponsor. Only 18 positions left!
