    SIG: Plein Air Painting

    Manchester


    Sunday September 26, 2021

    10am - 3pm

    Hosted by Sue Craig & Nancy Murray


    The last plein air event of the season will be held on Sunday, September 26 at a secluded 45 acre property near Manchester. This is a gem of a property, boasting lovingly tended gardens surrounded by rolling meadows of wild grasses and stands of trees which should be at their peak autumnal glory on this day.

    Time for the event is 10:00 am to 3:00 pm so even if you can't be there at 10:00 you would still have time to make a painting.

    Rain date is October 10.
