Announcing Paint Grand Traverse 2020: Virtually Beautiful

We are 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!  

PGT 2020: Virtually Beautiful

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

  • Artists will spend a beautiful weekend painting in downtown Traverse City and Old Mission Peninsula.
  • Online shoppers will get the first choice of paintings, August 10-16.
  • An in-person exhibit and sale will run August 17-September 12 in the Carnegie Gallery at Crooked Tree Arts Center - 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!)
  • Live-streamed awards presentation
  • Outdoor painting demonstrations
  • ...and more!
