Plein Air with a Flair

Paint Day and Exhibit Opportunity
PAINT DAY: SATURDAY, JULY 16, 10 am-3 pm (Rain date is Sunday, July 17, 10 am-3 pm) at the Harris Center for Conservation, 83 King’s Highway, Hancock, NH

Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The Harris Center offers a wonderful venue for artists including painters and photographers to create! Project Shakespeare actors will wander around the grounds in their “Taming of the Shrew” costumes and there will be live music. The public is invited to view the painters and photographers in action; they will be encouraged to purchase the “wet” artwork. WCA member artists and photographers as well as non-members are encouraged to participate. Artists will have the option to show their work in The Harris Center in an exhibit running from August 8 to August 31. Details to follow.

Registration Fee: WCANH members: $25; Non-members: $35
