2011 Paint Out!
July 9, 2011

The Dana Gallery is hosting the 9th annual Paint Out!

Beginning July 15th, Twenty five established artists will come to Missoula and the surrounding area to paint en plein air, French for "in the open air. They take on the challenge of working in changing elements: heat, shifting light, and moving subjects.
Plein air artists follow in the footsteps of the French Impressionists from the late 1800's and the American artists from the coast and southwest who followed the railroads west, painting scenes that informed the nation of Western grandeur in the 1900's.

The Dana Gallery is proud to continue the tradition of plein air work through holding this annual event. The plein air work, as well as studio work from each artist, will hang in the gallery from July 20th-August 31st.

The show opens with a private reception for sponsors on Wednesday, July 20th.
