Sheepscot Valley Conservation Association and the Maine Art Gallery invite artists to explore the Sheepscot watershed and create art in a week-long plein air event, July 20-25. During that time, artists will be given access to riverfront properties not otherwise open to the public. At the end of the week, the artists will bring their work to the Maine Art Gallery, 15 Warren St., Wiscasset, for a two-week show, beginning July 30.

Artists are asked to donate a percentage of their sales to support both the Maine Art Gallery and Sheepscot Valley Conservation Association helping these nonprofits celebrate art and nature and protect local landscapes.

The plein air event is part of SVCA’s year-long focus on art and nature. There will be a breakfast kickoff at the SVCA headquarters on Monday, July 20, and the artists are invited to display their works in progress at the annual SVCA member barbecue on Thursday of that week. The finished work is to be delivered to the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset on Saturday, July 25.
