The Glen Arbor Art Association (GAAA) Plein Art Paint Out “Wet Painting Sale” is Aug. 3, 5:45 p.m. at the Art Association, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
Sixty artist from across Michigan and other Great Lakes States registered to participate in this 5th annual event. The day begins early in the morning. Painters head off to find their idyllic spots and set up their easels for the day. The aim and challenge of a Plein Air Paint Out is to “capture the moment.” All 2-D works must be initiated and finished on this one day -- rain or shine.
The artists return to GAAA in the late afternoon with framed work and a crew of volunteers put the exhibit together. The exhibit is juried with prizes given that night. The “Wet Painting” reception opens to the public and the works are offered on a first-come basis. A donation of $10 per person is asked at the door for the “Wet Painting” reception and sale, which includes a wine sampling and appetizers from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
For more information call the GAAA, 231/334-6112.
