Come see artists painting in the Shangri-La of the Southwest! Sedona is a sublime environment with stunning beauty and the Sedona Arts Center has roots going back 60 years to the founding of Sedona’s identity as an ‘art colony’. The Sedona Plein Air Festival takes place during the best weather period of the year at the height of tourist season and is supported by a group of very experienced and enthusiastic staff and volunteers. Our community of art lovers open their doors to host – twenty-five artists from around the country have been selected to participate.

An opening exhibition of six works by each artist creates a diverse opening exhibition representing a variety of media and style incorporating studio and plein air work. Paintings done during the festival are integrated into the ongoing exhibition throughout the week. Paintings are available for sale to patrons all week long. A keynote address mid-week will be presented by Dave Santillanes who also presents a 3.5 day workshop during the Festival and judges for awards at the Friday evening awards gala. The festival also includes three paint-out events where all artist’s paint and the public is invited to watch and buy. Each paint-out has its own awards accompanied by a sales event.
