Participants must arrange and provide their own lodging, but the organizers can direct people to camping and lodging options.


For artists who attend 2 days of the Red Lodge paint out, they are invited exhibit some work made during the week at the Depot Gallery in October. The same holds true for the Cody paint out. That exhibit will be hosted by the Cody County Art League in November.


Both of these paint outs are meant to be relaxing, collegial event: a great chance to meet other artists who share a delight in the outdoors. No competition or awards. No formal workshop.
