WALLA WALLA — A group of local painters will join out-of-towners to hold a “Paint Out” in the area the week of June 23.
Paint Out is a gathering of artists involved an intensive plein air (outdoors) painting session over a period of days. Watchers are welcome.
The artists from Florida are part of the Straw Hat Painters, who seek new inspiration beyond the Gulf Coast and Florida.
The artists will be in various spots around town the morning of June 26, then in the afternoon move to Tero Estates Winery in Milton-Freewater. The Blue Mountain Lavender Farm in Lowden will be their destination the morning of June 27, with a 5 p.m.-dusk painting session at Bennington Lake to follow. Harris Park, southeast of Milton-Freewater, is their final stop, on June 28.
Works created in the Paint Out sessions will be on sale 4:30-6 p.m. June 29 at the Carnegie Picture Lab, 515 E. Main St.
