Paint the Poudre Plein Air

by Sarah Judson July 02, 2013

Speaking of festivals, we have our own home-grown one going on even as we speak. It started today and will last for about two weeks, until the exhibit closes on Sunday July 14th. The event has its own Facebook page with paintings from some of the 40 artists who were juried in. The Cache la Poudre River is one of the last Wild and Scenic rivers in the nation. It travels 126 miles from Cameron Pass (altitude 10,000 feet) through Poudre Canyon, Old Town Fort Collins and out on to the plains, where it enters the South Platte river. The Poudre River Trail is a 10-mile paved corridor allows hikers & bikers to enjoy the river as it flows through Fort Collins. There is also a trail farther east between Windsor and Greeley.  A portion of the proceeds from this festival will be donated to protect the Poudre and keep it wild. There's nothing like a plein-air event to increase awareness of your surroundings. Thank you to Marie Massey and Diane Edwards for coming up with this excellent idea, and let's hope it becomes an annual event.
