The Kerrville Outdoor Painters Event (KOPE) is an exciting, casual 3-day fine art event in Kerrville.  This juried event brings dozens of nationally-recognized outdoor painters to Kerr County to paint "en plein air," which refers to the style of painting "in the open air."

See the artists painting around the county and then visit the gallery at KACC
to see dozens of paintings created locally during the event. 

Each painting surface is pre-stamped with the KOPE logo to ensure the work has been done at the event.  Be part of the fun that is bringing artists from across the nation to paint our city!

If you can't make it to the opening reception, the paintings will be on exhibit at KACC 
October 6 - November 3.  Admission to the center is free!

I can't come this weekend but I just might make it a goal for next year! I AM seriously thinking about joining the Austin Pastel Society though!
