Artists invited to paint on the beach

Harrison's lakefront to become outdoor art studio

Artists are being invited to take a day away from the studio, and bring their brushes to the beach.

The Harrison Art Expo runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on August 12 in Harrison Hot Springs.

Local artists have created the event to share the beauty of their backyard with artists from all communities. It’s a chance to enjoy a day of “plein air” painting while being surrounded by spectacular scenery

Those who participate are invited to setup to sell artwork and/or to paint, photograph and even just to network with fellow artists.

Artists have to bring their own equipment such as seating, easels, art supplies, portable table or camera, to make the day enjoyable and comfortable.

This is not a crafting event, however.

Available painting areas are from the Harrison Hotel entrance, along the beach, to and including Rendall Park (by the boat launch).

Artists are asked to set up on grassed areas only, not on walkways.

There is no registration for this event.

Organizers ask that people carpool, as parking is limited. There is also no admission fee.
