Plein air painters visit the mountains

Area outdoor painters will bring their paint boxes and easels to Macon County for Paint the Macon Mountains on Sept. 10 and 11, supported by the International Plein Air Painters.

Artists from Asheville to Atlanta are expected to be outdoors throughout the county, painting the waterfalls and beautiful scenery.

Plein air artists seek the quality of natural light and atmosphere outdoors.  They use a variety of media, from oils through watercolors and pastels. The public will be able to join in by watching individual artists work on location throughout the two days. 

A list of locations where you can spot artists working will be available online at and submissions of artwork from the artists will be posted on the site after the event.
