    Please give this information and dates to your friends.  All are invited to come, just have them e-mail me at camahoney@ktis.net ,so we can put them on any information forwarding list.
    
    Artists Along the Missouri–is FREE to all artists and is open to ANY age, using ANY media. It is designed as a working venue for artists to gather/meeting other artists from around the Midwest/nation that paint from life on location, en plein air.  This event is organized to create camaraderie among artists, to meet other artists, network, learn from others and explore the Midwest through their art.
    
    There is no cost to participate.  The meeting places are provided, complimentary and the events are put together by volunteers to promote the arts in the region.    
    
    We will be “signing-in”:  Let others know where you are painting each day, pick up your packets and have your canvases and/or papers stamped at “Kunstler Haus”, 207 1st Street, Hermann, MO
    
    This year, you are invited to bring 2-3 small other “en plein air pieces to show and sell” which were created in the past here in Hermann or failing that, else-where.  This opportunity is for every participating artist; especially, for those just arriving on Saturday who haven’t yet had an opportunity to paint in Hermann before this year
    
    Saturday, September 4:  for those that would like to show some of your artworks created during the weekend of painting, there will be an opportunity to “show and sell”–located at the Hofgarten, corner of First & Gutenberg Streets–both during the DAY and EARLY EVENING this year,  for the Open Air Paint-Out Exhibition scheduled on-line and in the A-C, Hermann’s newspaper.
    
    Again, Hermann is a lovely place during the fall.  You may paint anywhere within reasonable driving distance….maps of interesting view/places will be provided.
