A Day on the Farm

On Sunday, Sept 23, I'll be participating in my first "paint out". What's a paint out? A paint out is an event where a number artists paint outdoors, en plein air, and the general public is invited to watch. The paintings produced are usually sold or auctioned off soon after, often to benefit a worthy cause. It's a bit of performance art I suppose.

On Sept 23, 2007, the Hunterdon Land Trust Alliance is having their annual "A Day on the Farm" - a fun filled day of activities at the Dvoor Farm on the Rt 12 circle just outside of Flemington, NJ. It's the big barn with


painted across the roof in big bold white letters - you can't miss it! The paint out is from 9 am to 2 pm - they'll also have live music, good food, a farmer's market, a puppet show for the kids and more - visit www.htla.org for a complete list of activities. It's free of charge and everyone is welcome to attend.

All paintings produced at this event are being donated to the Hunterdon Land Trust, to be auctioned off at their Fall Gala on October 20, 2007 at The Hunterdon Museum of Art in Clinton, NJ. Since I do so much painting in Hunterdon County, I'm happy to do my part, and I hope we raise a lot of money for the Land Trust.

  1. Can't wait to see the results of the Paint Out (clever name, by the way.)
    You are becoming quite a master of painting for the public! Go, Joe!
