Local artists invited to "Paint the Town"

LEWISBURG, W. Va (WVVA)-- Artists in Lewisburg brave the rain, taking their easels and brushes into town for the "Paint the Town" event sponsored by the Greenbrier Artists.

This is the third year they are sponsoring the Plein Air weekend, inviting people to come and enjoy art outdoors instead of painting from a photo or inside.

Artists painted or sketched on location at the North House in Lewisburg Thursday, and were invited to work throughout the town of Lewisburg Friday.

Saturday from 9-3 the painting will continue, and at 3 PM the exhibit will officially open at the Greenbrier Valley Visitors Center.

The public is welcome to vote on their favorites.

At 5:00 Saturday evening, artists and visitors can gather Saturday to view the pieces before the People's Choice and Artists' Choice Awards will be announced at 5:45.

The artwork will continue to be displayed in the Greenbrier Valley Visitors Center for those who can't make it on Saturday.
