Paint Grand Traverse

I am honored and excited to have been selected to take part in the 2019 Paint Grand Traverse. This is a week-long plein air painting festival and competition featuring artists from across the country. There will be painting on-location: on the waterfront, downtown, and on the beach. There will be demonstrations, workshops, and a quick draw competition. The final celebration and art sale will be Saturday night (7pm).

The Grand Traverse region is located in northwest lower Michigan, and is known the world over for its gorgeous scenery, hundreds of miles of Lake Michigan coast, and historic small towns and villages. The largest of these, Traverse City, is nestled on the southern shore of West Grand Traverse Bay, and is home to Crooked Tree Arts Center - Traverse City.

Paint Grand Traverse is presented by Crooked Tree Arts Center, a community-based arts center serving northern Michigan from campuses in Traverse City and Petoskey. Visit them online at
