Paint in ‘plein air’ on beach

Harrison beach will come to life with painters on Sunday

Local 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 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 3 in Harrison Hot Springs.

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.

In order to make the day enjoyable and comfortable, artists are encouraged to bring their own equipment such as seating, easels, art supplies, portable table, camera and so forth.

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 the grassed areas only, not on the walkways.

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