2010 Tug Hill Plein Air "Paint Out"

3rd Annual Plein Air Paint Out

The Annual Plein Air Paint Out has become THTLT’s “signature event.” It is a unique way to recognize the diversity, beauty and magnificence of the region. A Paint Out is a group of artists painting together, typically en plein air – a French term meaning “in the fresh air.” As artists paint outside, the public is invited to visit with the artists, observe their work in progress and ask questions. The event began in 2008 at the Trenton Falls Gorge Trails, and 2009 at Constable Hall.

The 2010 Plein Air Paint Out will be held Saturday, September 25th at the Salmon River Fish Hatchery. The event is in conjunction with the 15th Annual Salmon River Hatchery Open House and the celebration of "National Hunting and Fishing Day." The hatchery holds activities, seminars, and demonstrations throughout the day, geared toward youth and families.

The Plein Air Paint Out will feature artists painting at both the hatchery and the Salmon River Falls. Paintings created throughout the day will be auctioned off that evening at the benefit auction. The auction will be held at the fish hatchery and all proceeds will benefit Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust.
