Paint Grand Traverse 2020: Virtually Beautiful

  • About

    The Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City is thrilled to announce that we've re-imagined Paint Grand Traverse 2020 as a hybrid in-person and online event, and we're looking forward to connecting talented plein air painters, art fans, and collectors this August!

    We're calling it Paint Grand Traverse 2020: Virtually Beautiful, and it will include many of the things you love about Paint Grand Traverse, adapted for the current public health situation.

    Artists will spend a beautiful weekend painting in downtown Traverse City and the Old Mission Peninsula. Online shoppers will get the first choice of paintings from Monday, August 10th to Sunday, August 16th. An in-person exhibit and sale will run from Monday, August 17th to Saturday, September 12th in the Carnegie Gallery at Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City (with health and safety measures in place!).

    Paint Grand Traverse week will also include a virtual Pint-Sized Paint Out for Kids (details coming soon!), a live-streamed awards presentation, outdoor painting demonstrations, and more!
