Thank you! If I'd known about this sooner I wouldn't have taken some vacation days already this month.

@Carol, yes, they are.  The reason is that this is a partnership with the Hillsborough Arts Council (although the paint-out is all over Orange County). Hillsborough's Art Walk happens on the last Friday of each month, and we wanted the awards/exhibit to coincide with that... but we will definitely look at that next year and see what we can do....  Thanks!

Are the dates listed correct? This is taking place during a work week when most of us have to be at our regular places of employment? May I make a suggestion: next year, hold this event on a weekend so most of us can participate. Thanks!

Here's a great video from Mike Rooney talking about how to pack a bag... there's a bunch of others too.  And all the folks on this page could certainly give you some great tips!! http://www.jerrysartarama.com/free-art-instruction-videos/packing-a...;

We're excited too!  Scott, we're looking for locals to serve as host homes for painters traveling in for the event.  If you're interested, email me at kmurray@orangecountync.gov.
