Walkway Collaborates with Barrett Art Center to Host Paint-Out & Plein Air Auction
The event begins at 7:30 AM when 50 selected artists will create fine art paintings of the scenic shores of the Hudson River from the Walkway and points along Dutchess and Ulster County on the day of the event. The public is invited to look over the shoulders of the artists (anytime after 10am) as they create exclusive paintings that will be auctioned off later in the day.
At 4:30 PM the public is invited to a Preview Reception, with hearty hors d 'oeuvres & wine. This is followed at 5:30 PM with a Live Auction. The reception and auction will be hosted at Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum Pavilion on the Hudson, 75 North Water Street, Poughkeepsie, New York. The featured Auctioneer will be William J. Jenack of William J. Jenack Estate Appraisers and Fine Art Auctioneers.
"There is something magical about seeing professional artists create these paintings and then bidding on one to take home forever" says Barrett Art Center Executive Director. "Any painting means so much more when you've met the artist and know exactly were he or she was standing when it was painted."
This is a charity art auction. Proceeds benefit the educational programs of the Barrett School of Art, at Barrett Art Center, and Barrett Clay Works. Tickets are $20.
