A Plein Air painting event is scheduled to be held in the City of Provo, Utah on Wednesday, October 5th through Friday, October 7th 2011 with a subsequent Plein Air Provo exhibit running October 7th - 28th.

Provo, the county seat of Utah County, is located about 50 miles south of Salt Lake City along the Wasatch Front. Provo was originally called Fort Utah when it was settled in 1849 by 33 Mormon families from Salt Lake City, but was re-named Provo in 1850 for Étienne Provost, an early French-Canadian trapper who arrived in the region in 1825.

The city of Provo, dotted with historic homes and architecture, parks, mountains, rivers and Utah Lake provide numerous attractions for artists. Artists may paint anywhere within the City of Provo. With autumn in the air possible scenes include historic structures, pastoral vistas, mountain and stream scenes, city and landscapes and agricultural subjects.

Artists may turn in up to three completed, framed and ready to be hung artworks. Any two-dimensional medium (oils, acrylics, gauche, watercolors and pastels) is acceptable, but work must be done “en plein air” without the assistance of photography or studio work.
