Paint the Town
The Museum on Main is inviting artists of all levels, ages 14 and up, to participate in a daylong plein air community art event to Paint the Town on Saturday, May 14, 2011. The event will begin at 9:00 am when artists bring their supplies to the Museum on Main to check-in and receive their apron and box lunch. Artists will then go out and paint at a location of their choice. Artists will return their "wet artworks" to the Museum on Main between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm. The art will be photographed for an online auction and will be placed on display. There is a $10 registration fee to participate in the event. Artwork created at Paint the Town will be available for auction online following the event. All artwork will start with a minimum bid of $20 and artists will be given a link at check-in. Any art not purchased will be returned to the artist and 20% of the final auction sale price will be returned to the artist when sold for over $100.
