Art lovers will want to head up into the mountains for the Plein Air event in vintage, picturesque, Georgetown on Saturday, July 29, 2023. A charming town of colorful Victorian buildings ringed by mountain views, Georgetown has long been a favorite of artists, who will be painting outdoors over the weekend (6 a.m. to 8 p.m.) throughout town and the Georgetown-Silver Plume Historic District.
To see many of the artists at once, check out the Quick Draw on 6th Street from 10 a.m. to noon. Artists congregate on 6th street to produce works of art within a set period of time.
