In the 4th Annual Paint Great Falls: Plein Air Competition sponsored by The Arts of Great Falls, Wednesday, Sept. 5 - Sunday, Sept. 9, artists will be painting the beautiful scenery outdoors in Great Falls. Painters will be in popular locations such as Great Falls Park, Riverbend Park and Colvin Run Mill, as well as private gardens, a historic farm, L’Auberge Chez Francois and more. The community can watch the artists create their original art in “plein air” by stopping by their locations daily noted at www.greatfallsart.org/participants/.
The community is invited to two weekend Open House Receptions to see the final paintings of Great Falls scenes. Pieces painted by Friday will be submitted for the Art Walk Friday and all submissions will be hung in the gallery for the Awards & Collectors reception.
