Dear OOPS artists and any artist in the Eastern North Carolina area...
Please join us in beautiful Downtown New Bern, North Carolina on Saturday, September 6, and Sunday, September 7, 2008 to do our part in promoting plein air painting worldwide. These two dates will coincide with the dates set by the IPAP and we have the honor of sharing this experience with our plein air buddies from Oriental and Washington, NC. We decided on New Bern for it's historical significance, southern charm and beauty plus the fact it is centrally located for the three groups. We extend an invitation to our friends in the Greenville plein air group and any artist wishing to join in on the fun... all mediums and skill levels welcome.

Saturday, September 5, 2008. (9AM ~ Until)
The plan is to meet at Union Point Park (Downtown New Bern along the waterfront) at 9:00 AM and then plan out the day. The Park address is 210 E. Front Street, plan to meet near the Gazebo to pick up scenic location map. We can scatter out and paint throughout the waterfront or downtown area... everything is within close proximity and one can easily get around by foot or car. There are plenty of cafes, etc... to grab a bite to eat.
Sunday, September 6, 2008. (9AM ~ Until)
The plan for Sunday is to meet again at Union Point Park... Park address is 210 E. Front Street, meet near the Gazebo to pick up scenic location map. Once again... you have the option to scatter and paint where you would like as this area is also close to the historiacl downtown area of New Bern. We are starting early because most of the OOPS artists from Onslow County have to be back in Jacksonville for an artists reception at the Council for the Arts and the OAS Images Show... this gives the OOPS bunch from 8AM until about 1PM to paint.
We look forward to the camaraderie we will share and the special honor of keeping the tradition of painting "En Plein Aire" alive. Once the event is over... we can gather (through email) images of all the paintings for an online exhibit to be hosted on this site.
A special thank you to Susan Cheatham for organizing the times and locations!
Please click here to comment and let us know your name, location, and what days and times you plan to paint.
This will serve as our September Piant Out for the OOPS members... make plans to attend.
Hope to see everyone there!
Thanks in advance....
