Ashcroft Plein Air Paint Out
June 1, 2 & 3
On the Road Again! This will be the third year that friends and I will attend the Ashcroft Plein Air Paint Out sponsored by Winding River Arts. Artists are invited to paint the city and surroundings and the whole event culminates in a wet canvas show and sale on Sunday.
We watched with trepidation as much of the surrounding area was damaged in the wildfires last year, but thankfully Ashcroft was spared the worst.
