Paint Out in Harney County

Join Mary Lou Wilhelm July 25 for the First Annual Paint Out in Harney County, Oregon. This is a free event being held at the Devine Canyon Scenic Corridor located on Hwy. 395 between Burns and John Day.

Home base will be located in the beautiful wood framed, open air pavilion in the Idlewild campground, located about 17 miles from Burns. Artists will select their subject in the nearby Devine Canyon. This canyon has wonderful views of rim rock and other formations.

This paint out is free and open to people of all ages and abilities: beginners, school art class, students, home schooled students, their parents, the entire artist community. All artists, not just locally, but out of the area are welcome to participate. Two dimensional arts are welcome including, watercolor, acrylics, oils, pastels, charcoal and sketching.

Registration will begin at 8am on the day of the event and end at 10:30am. Participants will paint in the field at a location they have selected until 2:30pm when the art is submitted. Artists can submit only two works to be judged (art work must be ready for exhibit).

During the judging a historian will give a talk about Devine Canyon while the judges pick out 20 works for display the month of August in Frans Deli located on Broadway in Burns.
