2014 CBPAI Excursions
In order to assist Open Class artists in accessing Crested Butte’s extraordinary scenery, the gallery has arranged daily painting excursions during our month-long painting period. Every day – from June 10th through July 11th – the gallery will be leading excursions to a variety of great painting locations. Some excursions are nearby and shorter, some are deeper into the backcountry and longer in time. Check our event calendar for details on these excursions.
Prices for these excursions vary, but are very reasonable, and reflect varying time commitment by our excursion leaders. A few of our excursions are free. Our Forest Service permit limits the number of painters that can go on these excursions, so sign up early to ensure your spot.
Carpooling is mandatory as required by our permit. If you have a vehicle that can fit a group, and you are willing to drive, let us know when you sign up. A handful of our more ambitious excursions require 4WD, so let us know also if you have a 4WD vehicle and are capable of driving 4WD terrain.
Excursion spots require payment in advance. Payments can be refunded if you are unable to attend – if we can fill your spot, so we are developing waiting lists for the excursions. We will seek to contact you two days before your excursion to verify that you will be joining us. Please add prices for all excursions you wish to attend, listing each of them on a sheet of paper and send a check to the Oh-Be-Joyful Gallery at P.O. Box 1150, Crested Butte, CO 81224. You can also email us a list of excursions you wish to attend and call the gallery at (970) 349-5936 to set up a credit card payment for excursions or to check if excursion spots are still available.
