OOPS Paint Out set for March 20th in Burgaw, NC

Courthouse at Burgaw, NC
Bonnie and Terry Rogers have been so gracious to organize this month's paint out. They have been loyal to the OOPS group for over a year and we decided to travel outside the county line to their hometown of Burgaw, NC for this month's paint out. We'll meet at the old courthouse. The courthouse, the Confederate monument, the old jail, the old depot within a couple blocks, little shops etc.... offer plenty of painting subjects!

WHAT: OOPS! March 2011 Paint Out
WHEN: Sunday, March 20, 2011 from 1PM until ... This date and location was organized by Bonnie and Terry Rogers
Confederate Monument
at Burgaw Courthouse
WHERE: Downtown Burgaw, NC. Meet at the Confederate Monument at the Courthouse... you can't miss it... see directions below.
WHY: Simply put... we LOVE gathering with like minded artists and painting outdoors!

WHAT ELSE: We will gather for a dutch-treat diner afterwards at a nearby diner... Bonnie is working on a few possibilities. This will be a great time to socialize and discuss the days paintings and adventures!
DIRECTIONS: Directions to Burgaw paint-out:

From Jacksonville, follow Hwy. 53 straight into Burgaw. After you get to the Hwy. 117 and 53 intersection, (there are 2 gas stations, an AutoZone, a Food Lion, a Hardee’s, McDonald’s, Andy’s etc.) continue through stop-lights to the stop sign. Turn left here and follow curve to next stop-sign. Turn left here (Walker St.) and you are in the town proper. The old courthouse imposes itself on your view and you can drive around all sides, the Confederate Soldier and gazebo is on the Wright Street side, but there is also the old jail, the old depot within a couple blocks, little shops etc. Very easy to drive around and check out locations.

From the Wilmington area:
Take the 398 Exit ramp from I-40 and turn left onto Hwy.53 and proceed as above.

Newbies welcome... all mediums and skill levels... simply show up with your gear and be prepared to have fun!

What the heck is OOPS and how do I join the FUN?

What a great idea ... a painter's day out :)
I am an artist, too; I make nice jewelry and I just started my Blog. Thought you might want to take a look. Thanks
