On Friday, August 21st as part of downtown Asheboro’s “Out & About” event the Randolph Arts Guild (RAG) is hosting a Plein Air Paint Out. RAG is inviting artists to create their own plein air painting during the evening and then share their fresh creation with the public at a ‘meet & greet’ in Gallery 101. Beginning at 4:30p on 8/21 artists check in and select their supplies from the guild — (they have limited colors of oil, acrylic, and several easels). All registered artists will also receive a primed painting panel. Beginning at 5p artists will select a downtown location of their choosing and paint alla prima en plein air. The public is encouraged to check out what the artists are up to onsite — but wait, there’s more. The freshly created paintings are due back back at the guild by 7:30p. The wet paintings will carefully be installed for display in Gallery 101. At 8p the public is invited to check out the finished works and meet the artists. We might even have an impromptu critique. All paintings will be for sale and a 25% commission will be collected to offset the cost of the event. The Randolph Arts Guild 2015 Paint Out is free for guild members to participate and only costs $10 for non-members.
