Plein-air painting, which is painting in the open air, is a popular activity in Idaho because the surroundings offered by the state's beautiful topography lend themselves to be captured by artists. For the sixth year, the Plein Air Painters of Idaho will flock to Redfish Lake, south of Stanley, for the Redfish Plein Air Paint-Out on Tuesday, Aug. 31, through Friday, Sept. 4. A reception and show will be held at Redfish Lake Lodge on Thursday, Sept. 3, and will feature works for sale.

Redfish Lake as well as the surrounding Stanley Basin, Sawtooth Valley and Salmon River, offer spectacular mountain scenery that painters will capture throughout the week.

Ketchum artist Deanna Shrell is a Redfish Plein Air Paint-Out regular and member of the Plein Air Painters of Idaho. She was recognized for "Best Landscape" in the sixth annual Art Museum of Eastern Idaho show "Idaho Paints Idaho" earlier this year. She will be a featured artist at the Plein Air Painters of Idaho at the Redfish Plein Air Paint-Out. The public is welcome to observe artists. For details, call (208) 774-3819.
