En Plein Air: Paint-Out in Central Park

Kevin Macpherson, Kenn Backhaus, Joe Anna Arnett, and James Asher—four professional artists who are featured in the new PBS series Passport & Palette—will all leave their particular corners of the country to convene in Central Park this Saturday, July 18, for a day of plein air painting. This New York City Central Park Paint-Out will take place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (rain date July 19) at Bethesda Terrace, between the Angel of the Waters sculpture and the Lake.

If any of you have the opportunity to attend this plein air event, post a comment or picture here and let us know it went!
