Stop by Red Canyon Visitor Center to view some of the photographs captured by Jared Warren, the 2017 Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Photographer in Residence earlier this year. Jared Warren is a professor, researcher, psychologist, father, student of life, and… photographer. He enjoys many genres of this art but finds landscape photography to be his own best therapy. He hopes his photography motivates others to spend more time in nature, to feel a stronger connection with the Source of all creation, and to savor all the goodness in life. When not outside capturing the stunning landscapes of the western US, Jared is a professor of psychology at Brigham Young University where he teaches courses and conducts research on mindfulness.

The Plein Air Exhibit is the highlight of the festival and showcases all art submitted for the Plein Air Competitions. The show typically includes more than 100 entries in oil, pastel, watercolor, and other mixed media that have been produced during the days leading up to the show by registered artists of all levels of experience. It also includes the works submitted for the Paint-Out events earlier in the week. The exhibit is a great venue for purchasing art and seeing how the region’s rural and natural landscapes have been interpreted and captured on canvas or paper by artists from near and far. Most works are for sale via direct sales or the silent auction that closes on Saturday evening.
