Paint & Write the Town

Schedule & Locations for Paint & Write the Town

The Paint & Write the Town scenic sites for 2021 have been selected and arranged by AiA members, Marnie Jeffers and Gay Hopkins, who hope you will find great inspiration to paint or write en plein air. Each location is associated with a given date and time when our group has been granted permission to paint and write there, and an event host will be present to welcome you, provide info and accept exhibition fees. You may visit or return to the public locations at your leisure to start or continue works in progress. Private locations cannot be accessed on other days without prior permission. Artists and writers are welcome to simply show up at their preferred location(s) to participate. No pre-registration is required to paint or write over the summer.
