20th Annual en plein air Artists Competition
Labor Day Weekend, August 31 - September 2, 2019 in Victor, CO

 “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I had no words for.”  Georgia O'Keeffe 

 

Come to historic Victor, CO and help us celebrate VCTA’s 20th anniversary and Victor, CO 125th anniversary,  as "plein air" artists from around the country gather to paint on location in our historic town.  Victor Celebrates The Arts is a judged show and will be celebrating the 20th year.  Judging is done by an established and respected professional artist. Professional and Non-Professional artists participate in painting various scenes within rustic Victor, and many legendary 1890’s gold mining sites nearby.  Our show captures national attention.  We invite you to join us as a participating artist as well as the public at large for this exciting and unique event.  We expect dozens of artists to participate, with more than 20 awards to be presented with total cash prizes of over $4,000.00.   Thousands of visitors from many states attend the show and enjoy watching the artists painting around Victor.

Victor, Colorado

This historic town of 400 residents is an unpolished gem of 1890's gold mining history.  Victor is located on the sunny side of Pike's Peak with great southern exposure, one hour west of Colorado Springs and 5-miles from Cripple Creek. Victor has panoramic views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, blue skies, fresh mountain air, alpine wild flowers, evergreens and aspens, all at an elevation of nearly 10,000 feet.  The natural beauty is breathtaking and an inspiration for the artist and all visitors alike.

Victor was recently celebrated on Denver's channel 7!!  Check it out here:
