It is almost time for one of my favorite New Harmony events, the Plein Air Paint Out sponsored by the Hoosier Salon Beginning on Thursday, April April 19th, numerous plein air artists will descend upon New Harmony to paint various outdoor settings throughout town.
These amazingly talented artists come from throughout the states to paint the beauty of New Harmony, enhance their skills in various painting workshops, participate in several competitions, enjoy the comradeship and perhaps sell a painting or two.
I love to walk throughout town to watch the painters in action. I am always amazed by their ability to create such beauty regardless of the weather conditions. I also love the surprise of their chosen focus in their setting.
Artists will be out and about Thursday the 2oth and Friday the 21st. The Quick Draw Competition begins at 5:00 on Thursday with awards given at 7:30. The overall Paint Out Awards presentation will take place on Saturday, April 22nd at 2:30 at the Holy Angels Center.
Want to take home a work of art? The Art Sale will take place in the Ribeyre Center on Saturday the 22nd from 9-noon.
Whatever you do,visit New Harmony and don’t miss the beauty of spring in New Harmony as interpreted by these talented folks!
