The “Harvest of Art” is a plein air painting show that coincides with Paonia's annual Mountain Harvest Festival, September 26-29. The Festival attracts hundreds of visitors from all over Colorado and beyond. Local hotels and B&B's are always fully booked for this event. Participating artists are guaranteed a large audience to view and buy their paintings during the Harvest Fest. Participants spend one day (12 hour period) capturing a piece of Paonia or the Paonia River Park in the medium of their choice. “Peoples' Choice” monetary ribbons will be awarded by gallery visitors and the top three artists will share $600 awarded by our Judge.
