Every so often an event comes along that no one should miss. The Historic Canyon Road Paint & Sculpt Out is one of them.

Every year, on the third Saturday of October, hundreds of artists bring paint, easels, clay, carving tools, fire, fibers, beads, precious metals, and stone to Canyon Road for the iconic event. Continuing a hundred year tradition, artists line the road to create new work “en plein air” and involve onlookers in the process.

The natural beauty of the pure mountain air, the ethereal quality of the light, and the clear vistas have proven an irresistible draw to artists for more than a century. The Paint & Sculpt Out brings together all these elements for one glorious autumnal weekend.

Each year, wonderful new elements are introduced to the “Paint Out”. In 2014, sculptors were added to the roster, and many revealed their fascinating processes for the first time on Canyon Road. This year, the event is open to all creative artists including glass blowers, fiber artists, jewelry designers, weavers, carvers, and potters.

Many take inspiration from Canyon Road’s carefully preserved historic adobes and gardens. Belly dancers, riders on horseback, passers-by, live musicians, and a festival parade with marching bands provide subject matter for others.

Friday Evening: Most galleries will be open late with artist receptions, demonstrations, and new exhibits. Take time to meet the artists and preview their work. Restaurants and many boutiques, designer jewelers, galleries and shops will be open late.

The event is organized by the Canyon Road Merchants Association with support from Business Sponsors.
