Pomperaug Outdoor Painters to Host Plein Air Event August 25th
Southbury, Connecticut, August 8, 2012; Please join the inaugural painting event of Pomperaug Outdoor Painters (POP) at Southbury Land Trust's Phillips Farm located on Sanford Road in Southbury on Saturday, August 25th, (rain date,Sunday, August 26th) from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Artists of all skill levels are welcome to come and sketch or paint for the day at no charge.
POP is a “plein air” (outdoor) painting group that has been formed to promote landscape painting in all media, camaraderie amongst local artists, and additionally to help in the preservation of natural spaces in the Southbury, CT area.
The SLT Phillips Farm offers 105 acres of panoramic ridgeline views, pastoral meadows, uncommon old growth forest, and delicate marsh and wetland areas. Located on unpaved Sanford Road, where the popular author Gladys Taber lived and wrote about the pleasures of country living, Phillips Farm is a scenic emblem of Southbury's rural past. Connected to Phillips by hiking trails, Lovdal Farm next door also hosts a variety of wildlife, birds, agricultural fields, plants and trees – even an old apple orchard - on the 50-acre property. Together, the properties offer many views and painting opportunities for artists. Parking is on the grassy area, to the right of the entrance. Be sure to bring your own easel and art supplies. No restroom facilities available.
Bring a friend and join us for the day. There is plenty of hiking for non-artists.
Come and enjoy one of Southbury Land Trust's fine preserves.
