New Melle Welcomes Plein Air Artists April 24 - Invite Artists to Paint at Your Property

Artists participating in the Augusta Plein Air Art Festival will be painting in and around New Melle on Tuesday, April 24. As in years past, area residents who would like to invite the artists to paint at their property are asked to contact the New Melle Chamber of Commerce so your name and address gets on a list that will be given to the artists.

The Day in New Melle $500 purchase award will again be sponsored by Peoples Savings Bank. An art sale and reception will be held at The Quarry Wine Garden that evening. Artwork created during the day will be on display and available for sale at the reception. Plan now to attend. Judging will be at 6 p.m. Come early to see the artwork as it arrives for display.

A few volunteers from the community would also be appreciated to help that day. To invite artists to your property or to volunteer, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 636-332-3050.
