Open to all AIS members, our All Member Paintout will be held at the iconic Central Park in New York! Canvas stamping and location maps will be available at the Salmagundi Club on Friday, from 10am to 5:30pm and beginning at 8am in Central Park. Our check/stamping station will be at the park entrance at the corner of Central Park South and 5th Avenue. Central Park offers so many potential subjects, from statues to buildings, to a boating lake, fountains, conservatory and so much more. We will have AIS members there to advise you, including Signature Members Tony D'Amico and Michele Byrne, who paint in the area often. Here is a map with locations to check out ahead of time: http://www.centralparknyc.org/maps/
Rather than the usual wet wall exhibition, we are doing things differently this year. We will need you to submit an image of your painting and the stamp on the back of your canvas/paper at the end of the day. We will do an online exhibition of the pieces you create...awards will be given too! No need to bring or purchase a frame. Stay tuned for more details to come...
Details to come - After our paintout, a final gathering to celebrate together with your fellow AIS members and their guests! Sponsored by Southwest Art Magazine. Please register and we will email you all the details as soon as they are finalized. Open to AIS members and one guest per member.
