Planning underway for September event

Posted on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at 4:18 pm

Plans are underway for the third Golden Hills of Louisiana Plein Air to be held Sept. 13. The Plein Air is functioning as a committee under the auspices of the Louisiana Chamber of Commerce.
The committee is seeking support for this event.  Last year,  32 artists were brought to the event – most from areas other than Pike County.
This year, the event will be paired with the Louisiana Garden Club’s Home Tour. There are many ways a person can help.
•Donate items such as water, snacks, promotional items, etc.
•Volunteer to help at the check-in table in the morning or at the artist supper or reception that evening.
•Offer discount coupons for food or merchandise.
•Host an artist in your home.
•Be a Purchase Patron who will pledge to buy artwork up front before the event.  This serves as an incentive in attracting artists.
•Support the artists and show them what a great community this is by getting out during the day to watch them paint and attend the reception and sale that evening at the Masonic Temple.
For more information or to volunteer, contact Martha Weston at marthaweston@sbcglobal.net  or 314-578-3502.
