2016 Exhibits

We will have 4 member exhibits in 2016! Please visit the Exhibits page for more information!




There is the strong possibility of a brand new plein air event in Littleton. The Aspen Grove Plein Air Art Festival. It will be held on or around Aug 25 – 31. It will be a quick 1 – 3 day paint the shops around Aspen Grove (Mineral and S.Santa Fe) event that will have music and a chance to hang and sell and possibly have awards. It is still in the planning stages but the shopping center is very keen on marketing the event and artist that participate. There may be a juried process to get in or a juried process to get high quality art hung in a limited space at the mall to sell. All this is still in the planning process. If you think this is a good idea and would like to be a part, please let Cliff Austin know by emailing him, and carbon copy Lori or Ted Garcia at
