Maynard Dixon Camp Out Invitational

Maynard Dixon Camp Out Invitational

June 20th – 25th  •  Mt. Carmel, UT

Honored to be invited by the Thunderbird Foundation to the Maynard Dixon Camp Out invitational in southern UT.  The Dixon Camp Out is much more than just an art show. In fact, it’s not really an art “show” at all. This event is a gathering of artists, collectors, community, and friends who love art.

The guiding principles of the event are two fold: we want to help artists in America and we want to ensure the viability of historic preservation.  We are deeply connected to the art of Maynard Dixon and his contributions to American art.  But rather than focusing solely on the beloved paintings of Maynard Dixon, we focus on the ‘art spirit’ and intention of Maynard Dixon, the artist, poet, and whole person.  In choosing to remember Dixon this way, we believe his legacy becomes even more meaningful when it is illuminated by the artists who are living and making art in 2016.

The camp out is also one of two fundraising events to support the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts.  In bringing serious collectors to this event, we help the artists on the forefront of American art continue to thrive, and we fulfill our mission for historic preservation.  All art sales from Dixon Camp Out and Maynard Dixon Country directly fund the artists as well as the annual operating budget of the Thunderbird Foundation for the Arts and the Maynard Dixon Living History Museum.

The event includes a ‘wet paint’ exhibit on June 25th.  The artists will paint through out the entire week and then exhibit the plein air works for sale.  There are also workshops and daily seminars and discussion panels.  It is a great opportunity to be immersed in the arts.

A few of my pieces in the show are:
