090613 Calling All Artists for Paint the Town event (246)

WOLFEBORO — Artists are invited to join in a day of plein air painting in Wolfeboro on Saturday, September 7.

Participants in this fourth annual Paint the Town event, sponsored by the Governor Wentworth Arts Council, will enjoy a day of outdoor painting in this scenic town on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. They can set up downtown, along the lakeshore, or on one of Wolfeboro's nearby walking trails.

Visitors can watch works of art being created and can purchase pieces either during the day or at a sale that runs from 2 to 3 p.m. in Cate Park.

Artist registration begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Community Bandstand in Cate Park, with painting under way until 2 p.m.

Painters pay a $15 registration fee and agree to give 40 percent of any sales to the Governor Wentworth Arts Council. Artists set the prices for their work and any unsold paintings remain the property of the artist.

Those registered receive a Paint the Town T-shirt, coffee and pastries in the morning, and water throughout the day. In addition, runners will be available to provide work-site coverage for artist breaks.

The Governor Wentworth Arts Council uses the monies raised to support arts programming in local schools and libraries.
