The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley will host its annual Fall Plein Air Paint Out and Wet Sale this September. Over the course of September 28th through the 30th, 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 three days of painting, the Museum will hold an exhibition “Wet Sale” on Sunday, October 1st 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 of freshly painted works while chatting with the artists. If you are unable to make the reception, SAMA will be retaining works for view and purchase through Saturday, October 14th. The paint out will offer $500 in cash prizes. This year’s prizes are generously sponsored by the children of Anita Manoli in honor of their beloved mother and by the SAMA Auxiliary. The participating children will receive special awards on Sunday during the Wet Sale. Artists who are interested in participating in the paint out should stop by the Museum or contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (724)-238-6015. A $35 non-refundable registration fee is required for participating artists.
