On August 25th for our monthly open paint day we have two options!
First, Kathleen Dangelo has been kind enough to offer us her beautiful property near New Glarus WI. Here is what she has written me:
"I am very excited about the plein air painting event at my home on Saturday, August 25. I would like to make a full day event for those who may be able to only come at certain times, etc. People can show up at dawn if they like, and we can propose a potluck lunch. My husband and I will provide grilled meats and drinks. Everyone else can bring a dish to pass. The day can go until sundown or longer as far as I'm concerned. I will also invite the new Madison area WIPAPA group, artists I know from WVA and Driftless Area Artists. Hopefully, we will have good painting weather and lots of time for conversation and critique.
My address is N7584 Marshall Bluff Road, Monticello, WI, 53570 (approx. 4 miles from New Glarus or about a half hour southwest of Madison).
Directions from New Glarus: I am approximately 4-5 miles south of New Glarus. Continue past New Glarus on Hwy. 69. Go up the big hill. Of note, the New Glarus Brewery will be on your left halfway up the hill.
You will be turning just past the crest of the hill (curves near the top) on the second road to the left which is Exeter Crossing Road. The first road is Valley View near the top and Exeter Crossing Road will be a very short distance beyond that. (The road on the top of the hill to the right is the New Glarus State Park.) After turning left onto Exeter Crossing, continue on this road until it comes to a “T” intersection (approx. 2-3 miles). (The only road you will see before this is Wettach Road to the left, but do not turn on to it.)
At the “T” intersection, Exeter Crossing turns to the left and Marshall Bluff Road turns to the right. Turn right and proceed approximately one-quarter mile to my driveway (woods on both sides of the road). The fire number is N7584 (on the sign next to the driveway). The driveway is the third one on the left after turning onto Marshall Bluff. You will also go over a bike trail before getting to my driveway.The driveway is one-half mile. Just stay on the gravel and follow the utility poles along the edge of the field to the end. Our house (a geodesic dome) will be visible after turning the last curve. PLEASE RSVP—Thank you, Kathleen
Second: We have been invited once again to paint with the BayView Artist Guild at South Shore Park during the Farmers Market! Here is their flier:
Happy Painting to All!!!
