“Paint The Glen” Paint Out in Glen Rose April 18

2015paintheglenrose
“PAINT THE GLEN” PAINT OUT
A PLEIN-AIR EVENT
SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 2015

Glen Rose, TX

Beginning as early as 7:30 a.m on Sat., Apr. 18., plein-air painters will check in and begin painting from Barnard’s Mill throughout the historic downtown area, and across the river in Heritage Park.

Plein-air is derived from the French words “en plein air”, meaning to paint outdoors. Sketching and painting outdoors has become tremendously popular in the last several years, so this is a marvelous opportunity to either paint in the event, or to observe artists while they paint. Artists welcome interested observers, so plan on visiting the historic and scenic sections of Glen Rose and the surrounding area and talking with the artists.

On Fri., Apr. 17, a reception and optional Nocturnal Paint is scheduled.

For more information, see the flyer: 2015 Paint the Glen
If you’re an artist interested in this one day event, please contact Pat Barrow 254-253-0311, 254-897-3081 or pbarrow@valornet

SWS Paintout at White Rock Lake

sws51

Spring is coming, and we have scheduled our first SWS local area paint out.

Location:     White Rock Lake – Sunset Bay  or Dreyfuss  Point south of the Bath House Cultural Center, or near the Sailing Clubs north of the Bath House.

Date:       Saturday, March 29, 2014

Times:     10:00 am to 1:00 pm (or later). Whoever wishes to after painting, meet at the parking area by the Bath House Cultural Center at 1:00 pm to show our work to each other.

Directions:   From the North (Northwest Highway south on Buckner Blvd.), take immediate right exit on East Lawther Road and follow it around to the boat areas. You will pass fishermen and a view of a foot bridge to the west. There are a lot of parking areas to choose from, and views of the lake, the boats and even the City skyline in the distance. The only toilets are Port-a-potties.

Coming from the South on Buckner Blvd., exit Mockingbird westbound, and exit to East Lawther Road and follow directions as above.

If you want to paint south of The Bath House Cultural Center, exit at the light at Lake Highlands Road and go west. Take the first left on Tiffany, and choose either Dreyfuss Point or Sunset Inn. Toilets appear to be open at Dreyfuss Point, but there are Port-a-potties at Sunset. You can also reach these sites if you take the exit at Northcliff to the Bath House, but turn left at the intersection with Lake Highlands and follow it around to the two sites (or go across through the housing area on Tiffany). You will find pelicans at Sunset and I believe Loons at Dreyfuss (birds, not people), along with views across the lake. There should be sailboats on the lake with the nice weather. Some of you may wish to paint at the Bath House, also.

Information:      I will be the contact person at the location – my cell number is 214 288-4546 if you get lost and need directions.  Bring snacks or a bag lunch and water, a hat and sunscreen (maybe bug spray, too).

Please contact me with any questions you might have. I am looking forward to seeing many of you there! If you are not on our e-mail list, send me a note at acousticdesign@earthlink.net to be added for future notifications.
