Alberta Culture Days 2021

September 11 @ 9:00 am - September 12 @ 4:00 pm

Once again, we are excited to be an official Alberta Culture Days 2021 Celebration Site, as we share the joy of creating art en plein air (outdoors, in the moment)! This year’s plein air party will include the launch of our annual juried plein air exhibition In The Open Air (submissions accepted until August 16th – click here for more info), Wet Paint Art Sale, Plein Air Paint-Out (complete with lots of picnicking!) and 2nd Annual Plein Air Competition, as well as a number of Plein Air Art Workshops, for a range of skill levels!

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate Alberta’s Month of the Artist, Alberta Culture Days and the autumn beauty of our SW Alberta foothills!

Watch this page or our social media streams and e-newsletters in mid-August for schedule and participant registration information.

Operating hours during this event:

  • Saturday September 11: 9 am – 5 pm
  • Sunday September 12: 10 am – 4 pm

We’re very pleased to have registered this event as part of the International Plein Air Painters’ Worldwide Paint Out.

Thank you to our 2021 Major Events Sponsor: The Edward by Section23 Developments and the following event sponsors: Alberta Culture Days and Swinton’s.
