The event, one of a series of events throughout the country, will be held at the Sunset Beach Park, located at 206 Sunset Boulevard, Sunset Beach, NC.

Since 2005, the Oil Painters of America has held this annual event. The Great Paint-Out was designed to enable members a chance to socialize and network in a plein air setting. Members all throughout North America are invited to host an event at a location that provides an aesthetically pleasing subject to represent on canvas. This year’s setting has, according to Joan Hoyle, this year’s host, “A park setting with beautiful old trees on the Intracoastal Waterway. The marshes are great and there are fishermen and kayaks (that could be used as subjects).”

In the case of rain, a rain date of October 15 has been set.
