Opening Reception: May 6 1-3 pm at the Jemez Fine Art Gallery
Mark your calendar for the PAPNM Spring Paintout & Show April 28 - May 24 as 60 PAPNM artists will have seven days 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 exhibiting May 6 - 24 in a non-juried show at Jemez Fine Art Gallery in Jemez Springs.
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.
Participants will experience some local flavor at Walatowa Visitor Center and Museum of History and Culture, where they will enjoy a catered lunch of traditional Jemez Pueblo fare. Adjacent to the center are the striking red rock buttes, which will be open to artists all day.
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.
