Artists to Paint the Town

Museum On Main sponsors painting event for the whole family

Artists are taking over downtown tomorrow for the second annual Paint the Town, sponsored by the Museum On Main, 603 Main St., Pleasanton.

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.

For more information about Paint the Town, contact the Museum On Main at 462-2766 or Artists may register until 11 a.m. on the day of the event; however, those who do not preregister cannot be guaranteed an event apron or box lunch.
