The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley will host a very special Fall Pein Air Paint Out this September. Over the course of September 23rd to 25th, more than a dozen artists will visit the Ligonier Valley. For three days, artists will paint a variety of fall scenes from local state forests, picturesque overlooks, and iconic attractions.
Following the three days of painting, the Museum will hold an exhibition “Wet Sale” on Sunday, September 26th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with light refreshments. Open to the public free of charge, the wet sale offers an opportunity to make purchases on the freshly painted works while speaking with the artists. If you are unable to make the reception, SAMA will be retaining works for view and purchase through Sunday, October 10th.
The paint out will offer $500 in cash prizes. The prizes are generously sponsored by Mack M. Darr Co. and Dr. James B. Simons. Artists who are interested in participating in the paint out should stop by the Museum, contact email@example.com or call (724)-238-6015. A $30 non-refundable registration fee is required for participating artists.
