  • Stamping begins May 31 and goes through June 10, 2019. You may begin working after getting your canvases stamped. All work must be created in Emery County, Utah.  Bring the blank canvas of your choice (canvas, board, paper, etc.) to one of the museums during the designated stamping days. You may have up to five (5) canvases stamped. During this time you will receive a registration form. You then will go out to paint on these canvases, and will choose up to two of them to enter in the competition. Turn these in with your registration and $25 fee before museums close on June 10th.
  • Canvases that have not been stamped will not be accepted. 
  • You may turn in your work anytime during the competition at both Museums during regular business hours. The last day to submit your work is June 10 at the John Wesley Powell River History Museum by 7pm or the Museum of the San Rafael by 4pm. You are allowed to submit two works total. Please see RULES for more details. Please make sure your work has your name and title on the back of the piece.
  • Please submit your work as dry as possible. We will do our best but the museum is not responsible for smeared work if turned in wet. 
  • The Plein Air Emery County exhibition will open June 13 at the John Wesley Powell River History Museum and will run through the artists reception on June 15. After the artist reception is over artists may take their work home.
