NHPleinAir Artists to hold Paint Out and Wet Paint Sale (Oct 6)

All artists who are in the area at the time are welcome to join us for
this event and the general public are invited to come watch artists at
work and learn about painting en plein aire.

WHO: NHPleinAir Artists members and any other plein air artists
who would like to join us for the event

WHAT: 1 day paint out and wet paint sale*

WHERE: Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm, Tamworth NH
* 20% from sale of each painting to be donated to the Museum
in support of their educational programs
WHEN: Saturday, October 6 from 10AM - 4PM

FEE: $5 registration fee, which will also be donated to the museum

Columbus Day Weekend is often peak foliage season, and definitely
peak "leaf peeper" (tourists who come to see the foliage) season here
in NH. The village of Tamworth is a beautiful little historic town
with artistic roots dating back many decades. Picture in your mind a
rolling grassy field with sections of rock wall. Add cows. Sheep. A
small pond. A gorgeous old barn now painted a soft yellow with white
trim. Brilliant fall foliage along the edges of the fields and off in
the distance. A white steepled church to the right, partially obscured
by 100 year old lilac bushes (which are not in bloom at this time of
year). Victorian homes on the street. Now add Mount Chocorua - one of
the most painted and photographed mountains in the world - sitting off
in the not too far distance as a backdrop to the scene. Sigh.

If you've been thinking about a trip to New England for foliage season,
come on out and join us for the paint out while you're here!
