The Watercolor Society of NC is sponsoring a plein air painting event at the Grandfather Vineyard in Boone! Anyone can attend- but you need to register by May 15th!!

We plan to start painting about 10 AM and paint until noon, break for a box lunch and wine, then paint until 2:30 PM or so, finishing the day with “show and tell.” There is a terrace level among the grape arbors with rock and mountain views, casual outdoor areas on the patio of a picturesque building, lawn chairs and picnic tables on the banks of the Watauga River, and—oh yes—a view of Grandfather Mountain. The box lunch and a wine tasting are included in the fee of $30. There will be no additional charge for non-WSNC members, but we hope you will consider joining our group.

Two dates, Monday, May 22nd, and Monday, June 19, have been reserved. The event will be on one or both dates, depending on response. Rain dates for these events would be on Tuesday.
To attend, email or call JoAnn Pippin, Western Region Director, at, or 603 387 6766.
