Caution: Wet Paint in Rye

Rye_art_center_paintout_at_marshlanThis coming Saturday, September 15th, the Rye Arts Center (RAC) will hold the 7th annual Annual Painters on Location: Plein-ar Paint-out and Live Art Auction.

Between 7am and 3pm, rain or shine, 40 professional artists from the tri-state including local Rye artists Elizabeth Derderian and Sally Tobin, will paint "on location" across various notable spots in Rye and surrounding communities. A public viewing follows at 5pm at the RAC gallery and a live auction is held at 6:15pm. Many paintings are still wet when auctioned.
