Featured Painting Locations

Do you have a business or establishment with great scenery, beautiful views, or interesting architecture? Would you like to offer your guests and customers the opportunity to watch our outstanding plein air artists paint live on your property? We're on the lookout for amazing places for our featured artists to paint during Paint Grand Traverse week, so let's talk!

Featured Painting Locations

Featured Painting Location Sponsorship

You provide the scenery, we’ll provide the talent! Each afternoon, sponsor locations will host 4-6 of our featured artists. Your guests and customers can watch as new masterpieces come to life before their eyes, and your establishment and its views will be immortalized on canvas by outstanding professional artists! (And we’ll also market your place to art collectors and fans who are following the artists.) In addition, your establishment will be:

  • Listed in the full-color PGT catalog (2,500)
  • Listed with link in at least two PGT and CTAC e-blasts (10,000+)
  • Listed with link on the PGT and CTAC websites
  • Tagged in social media posts promoting the artists’ appearance at your location

Featured painting location sponsorship is $250. Artwork will be available for purchase "off the easel" and at the Collectors Gala & Benefit on August 14.

A limited number of location sponsorships is available. Please contact Megan Kelto at megankelto@crookedtree.org or 231-937-2377 for more information. We are booking locations for:

  • Monday, August 10 - East Bay & Elk Rapids
  • Tuesday, August 11 - Leelanau County
  • Thursday, August 13 - Old Mission Peninsula
