Bartow paint Out 2009
Toni Treverton with her paintings at the Bartow Paint Out
Bartow FL, 2009 Plein Air Event was a huge success this year. We had great weather and over 40 painters particpated. We were open to experienced as well as artists just beginning at Plein Air, with the idea that we are turning people on to the great fun and challenge of painting out! Awards totaling over $2000. were given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and honorable mention winners. 3 Paintings were made into purchase awards. We will do it again next year. If you haven't ever been to Bartow, come on down. I think there is the most ecceletic collection of houses you will find anywhere in the state in the historic area...and the Historic Courthouse Museum, which hosted the show, is also a gem...and will add to your knowledge of settlers when you take the time to thru the museum. The exhibit of the art work will hang for Sale till Dec. 4th.
Thanks a bunch....hope you will come next year!
