A Beautiful Day for a Plein Air Paint Out

On Saturday October 15 Charles and I spent a beautiful sunny day in the Olde Town area of Conyers GA. The Olde Town Gallery & Studio was hosting their First Annual Olde Town Paint Out & Plein Air Exhibit, for which Charles had been asked to serve as judge.

We got there in the early afternoon, took a stroll to get the lay of the land and chat with other artists, got distracted for a bit by the treasures inside Sadie's Antiques, and finally settled down to paint. Charles had completed the judging by 6:30 that evening, and an awards ceremony and reception followed shortly thereafter.

Ten artists submitted 13 paintings over the course of the day. Congratulations to the award winners and to Lynda Ellis of Olde Town Gallery for planning and putting on a great event.

The exhibition's closing reception next Saturday will coincide with the Olde Town Fall Festival and an additional award, People's Choice, will be presented then.

Numerous photos from throughout the day can be found in albums on Charles' Facebook page and on Olde Town Gallery's Facebook page.
