October 22, 2015 “Wildlife” includes Plein Air

“Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man.” -Stewart Udall

“If you are a kind person and love animals, you may be lucky enough to find the Magic Valley. There you will discover a land where snow leopards play and mountains smile. I should tell you, though, that it will be a very hard journey. But I should also tell you that it is well worth the effort.” ― Helen Freeman

Visual artists are invited to produce works that portray animals in nature.  We are also encouraging plein air works of nature in general.
