Mark your calendar for the 2019 Jemez Springs Non-juried Paintout & Show. Paintings will be exhibited May 4-  May 23, 2019 at the Jemez Fine Art Gallery in Jemez Springs.  Up to 60 PAPNM artists will have six days from April 26 to May 1 to paint at beautiful and varied locations — some never or rarely opened to the general public before — within an approximate radius of 30 miles of Jemez Springs. Participants will select their single best work for exhibition.

Paint intriguing land forms of Ojito Wilderness, where dinosaurs once roamed, and the wide open grassland vistas of Valles Caldera. The old buildings in San Ysidro and sheer canyon sandstone cliffs cut through by tree-lined streams are favorite subjects to paint. Or try your hand at painting spring scenes in the high country at Fenton Lake or the rugged beauty of Bandelier National Monument.

Don't pass up this opportunity to paint one of PAPNM's most popular paintout regions — with special privileges to paint in areas you have not been to before.
