When we opened the Water Street Art Gallery, we knew we wanted to have a gallery dedicated to fine art but also one that promoted and fostered art and artists in the community. We feel this event supports that effort.
There are many plein air artists who get together to paint and we wanted to
set up an organized event that recognizes and rewards these fine artists who are so passionate about their work. This competition will be judged and prizes awarded.
Sapulpa is a great location for this event. Route 66 is Sapulpa's main street and Route 66 tourists find it an interesting and historical stop over. The still active and functioning downtown has the original buildings built in the mid-20's when what was once a Creek Indian village was transformed by the railroads and oil boom into a bustling city of 20,000.
This area's first permanent settler was a full blood lower Creek indian of the Kashita tribe of Alabama. Around 185o, he established a trading post about one mile southeast of present day Sapulpa. From that trading post came the birth of Sapulpa.
If you are not a painter, we hope you will be interested in watching the artists as they capture the local scenery. Plan to be in Sapulpa on October 17, visit the local businesses and be at the Water Street Art Gallery between 6:30 and 9:00 p.m. for a reception and sale of the day's painting efforts. You might be able to purchase the first place award winning painting.
If you are a plein air painter, watch for the brochure and entry form on this website. It should be published within the next two weeks.
