Once again, High Country Art Gallery invites residents and visitors to join us to paint the aspens the week of October 7. Well-known landscape painter Gwen Ethelbah will conduct a series of classes and trips to some of her prime fall color tree viewing locations in the area for a “plein air” experience. Students, experienced and beginner will have the opportunity to take art supplies with them on field trips and paint on site. This event is free and open to the public but you must pre-register.

The Paintout is scheduled for Monday through Thursday during the firsts full week in October. Attendees are invited to meet at the High Country Art Gallery, 13A White Mountain Blvd. (across from the Safeway/McDonald’s in Pinetop) each morning at 8:00 AM. Register at the Gallery each morning for specifics, since weather and location can vary.

The results of the Paintout will be exhibited during a show in the gallery, “Paint the Aspens”, through October. An opening reception will be held Friday, October 11 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Community members unable to attend the excursion but interested in displaying aspen artwork are encouraged to drop work off at the gallery.
