Paint the Town! 2016
We had a wonderful Paint the Town! 2016, which took place on Sept. 9, 10 and 11 in Kingston's historical Portsmouth Village. This was the fourth year that the Kingston School of Art has organized a 3-day plein air painting and sketching event, to coincide with the International Plein Air Painters' Worldwide Paintout Weekend.
Many of the works created during this year's Paint the Town! weekend were on display in the Window Art Gallery for the month of December, 2016, with a reception on Sunday, Dec. 4.
Congratulations to this year's award winners: Phil Chadwick, Nancy Steele, and Mari JH Brown.
Paint the Town! is a free event, and open to artists of all ages and stages. Paint the Town! 2017 is in the planning stages. The event will take place on Sept. 8, 9, 10, and will focus on the Swamp Ward and Inner Harbour neighbourhoods of downtown Kingston. We'll be using the church hall at Calvary United Church as our home base. Mark your calendars and watch for details!
