Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters is an association of professional artists. Membership in RMPAP is by invitation only.

Offers of memberships are only made to artists who have participated in one of our events as an invited guest. Our members receive first priority for show slots, so guest invitations are issued only when we have available space in a show. To be considered for a guest invitation, an artist must:

  • Be a professioinal artist working primarily en plein air.
  • Have a clear, concise, and easy to navigate website dedicated to their paintings and career.
  • Be represented by least one art gallery (co-ops and online marketing are not considered galleries).
  • Display a satisfactory level of professionalism and craftsmanship in their work.

Membership also requires participation in a minimum number of events, payment of annual dues, and payment of show fees as applicable. If you wish to be considered for a guest invitation, please use our contact tool to send us a link to your website. We generally jury applicants on an annual basis, and notify them of the status of their application once the jury process is complete.

Applicants who do not meet our criteria will not be considered.

Applications for the 2017 event ends December 31st 2016.
