Dazzling Rio Grande was painted at a favorite spot on the banks of the Rio Grande just south of Taos in the town of Pilar. Painting this scene every October is an annual must do event for me. The colors are always amazing and this year they were even more brilliant than usual. The mountain in the distance is often refer to as Waiting for the Sun Cliff.” ~Peggy


This work is part of the 16th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival – a festival unlike anything that we have ever done before! A first-of-its-kind, an all-woman festival, presented completely online October 24 – 31, 2020.

Each artist will be sending in work from their own diverse locations for presentation in the Arts Center’s online Gallery. At the conclusion of the festival week, well known plein air artist Lyn Boyer of Colorado will conduct an online awards ceremony.

Artists will submit new work as it is completed, accompanied by short narratives describing their selection of place and/or their creative process. Works from the festival will be available for purchase from Oct 25 – Nov 30, 2020.

Online presentations allow for rich content that could not otherwise be experienced. Art lovers will be able to immerse themselves in presentations from their favorite artists throughout the festival. From live demonstrations, to short videos created by our festival artists all across the country, to an online gallery of new works updated daily.
