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.

WOLFEBORO — Wolfeboro Friends of Music launches its 78th season with "Feelin' Groovy," a multi-media tribute to Simon and Garfunkel presented by Jim Witter and his band on Saturday, September 7, at 7:30 p.m. at Kingswood Arts Center.
Award winning Canadian singer/songwriter Witter wowed the Wolfeboro Friends of Music audience in October, 2012 with his multi-media smash hit "Piano Men." The concert is sponsored by Paul and Debbie Zimmerman.
Rear screen projection on-stage is an integral part of the Witter experience: sights and sounds of the 1960's are woven in with the present, moving hit-by-hit through such chart classics as "Wake Up Little Susie", "Homeward Bound," "Mrs. Robinson," and "The Sound of Silence". The band's clean, fluid back-up resonates in the spacious Kingswood Arts Center as Witter's versatile voice, a warm baritone with amazing range and personal interpretation, pays homage to the program namesakes.
A pre-concert dinner will be hosted by Lakes Region Newcomers Club. For full details pertaining to the dinner visit the Newcomers website at www.lrnc-nh.com.
This is the first of eight programs presented by Wolfeboro Friends of Music to people of the greater Lakes Region during its season, which runs from September through May. Tickets are available for $25 at the door; at Black's Paper Store, and Avery Insurance in Wolfeboro; or at Innisfree Bookshop in Meredith; by calling (603) 569-2151; or by visiting the website: www.wfriendsofmusic.org.
