I participated in the Ashland PaintOut last year, and it was a lot of fun!
The event takes place at North Mountain Park and Lithia Park. You get 4.5 hours to paint your little heart out, then submit your work to the judges. They pick 20 works to exhibit at Ashland Artworks, which is a really nice gallery here in town.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to participate this year, which is too bad because last year’s efforts made me the Park and Rec poster child for the event! I encourage all my Rogue Valley artist friends to go and paint in beautiful Ashland.
