Formerly known as “En Plein Air” – A 6-hour artwork masterpiece challenge is returning to downtown Huntsville! Off the Wall: En Plein Air Painting & Auction is being putting on by The Shutterbug Gallery in collaboration with the Group of Seven Festival.
Staring at 11am on Thursday September 7th, artists and area dignitaries are invited by organizers to grab a hand-crafted miniature canoe and some paint before choosing an outdoor location downtown to inspire their creations. Six hours later, participants have to put down their brushes.
The miniature canoes are then given a bit of drying time before they will go to display at an auction at 7pm. Join us at a red carpet soirée with cocktails and canapés, at the Algonquin Theatre, where you will have the unique opportunity to bid on these very special and unique hand-painted, hand-crafted miniature replica canoes. The event is for the very worthy cause of local student art bursaries.
Prepare yourself for an evening of rich Huntsville and Algonquin culture!
