This is a day for artists of every media to come together to paint the sights of Pleasanton, support the museum, and enjoy the camaraderie of other artists Plus it gives the public a chance to see artists at work and then to purchase a piece of Pleasanton art at silent and live auctions later in the day. There is no admission fee.
Artists arrive at the Museum On Main at 9 a.m. to check in before heading out to a location in Pleasanton of their choice to paint for the day. In the afternoon, the artists return to the museum with their "wet paintings" to have them judged by a panel of guest judges to select the works that will be a part of the silent auction from 4-6 p.m. and a live auction at 6 p.m.
Family art activities will take place in front of the Museum On Main from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants will try their hand at watercolor, chalk art and face painting. There will be no charge for these activities.
There will be a no-host champagne/wine/soda bar during the silent and live auctions.
