For the fourth time, artists from around BC will be descending on Ashcroft to participate in the Plein Air Paint out May 22-24.
“Plein air” literally means open air and artists will be painting outdoors capturing the beauty of our community and the surrounding area on the Saturday and Sunday.
The event is growing in popularity and this year will see 45 artists taking part. “We have artists coming from northern BC, the Cariboo, the Kootenays, the Island, Lower Mainland and Sunshine Coast, as well as the Interior and we have 15 artists coming for the first time,” said organizer Jo-Anne Portman. “Artists are learning about our event through word of mouth and returning artists tell us that they are so impressed with the beauty of the area and of the welcome they receive from our community.”
The public is invited to the Show and Sale of works created that weekend on Sunday, May 24 from 6-8 pm at St. Alban’s Church Hall.
