"It is indeed a pleasure for the Center for the Arts Evergreen to again join forces with Evergreen Fine Art Gallery for this wonderful event that celebrates the western arts traditions, plein air painting at its best, and a fabulous fund raiser to secure and encourage arts education in our local schools. This collaboration of private and nonprofit arts entities is unique in the mountain community and the beneficiaries of this fund raiser are our local art teachers and their students."

A very special part of the exhibition will be “The Masters of Today and Tomorrow”, featuring work from local elementary school students and professional artists, that have been transferred to china plates and are for sale in a silent auction. Through our partnership with Center for the Arts Evergreen, the event will benefit Art Education and Art Appreciation in our local mountain area schools. Last year this project allowed Center for the Arts Evergreen to award a portion of the proceeds to eight K-12 art teachers.
