South Greets North Paint Out Event: Perfect Weather and Perfect Plein Air Painting Opportunities Were Enjoyed by all!

Paint Out Artists working at Lightkeeper's Residence, Cohasset

"I couldn't have asked for a better day", said Tina Watson of Cohasset," the weather was perfect!"
The second North Shore/South Shore Paint Out was held on Tuesday, July 19th, once again earning the highest praise and enthusiasm from the painters who participated.
Judythe Meagher, the North Shore coordinator and one of the originators behind this reciprocal event, initiated the first Paint Out, which was held last year in venues around Gloucester Harbor and which was hosted by the North Shore Art Association. "Last year's event was so much fun that we decided to do a reciprocal event this year."  Judythe said of this  year's trip to Cohasset, "It was a roaring success. The South Shore Arts Center members were wonderfully welcoming and treated us as honored guests. All of the participants raved about the experience. One of our North Shore Painters, Dale Blodgett, sold her painting to one of the South Shore artists, which was an additional bonus!"

After a morning get together at the South Shore Art Center, the painters split off in groups, some painting portraits from life model on Cohasset Common, others finding their way to the Cohasset Sailing Club, The Lighthousekeeper's Residence at Minot Light, and picturesque scenes along Bailey's Creek and Cohasset Harbor. North Shore artist Shirley Hamilton said of her chosen spot, overlooking Bailey's Creek, "It's a gorgeous sight. It was definitely worth the trip!." After a day of painting the artists reconvened at the South Shore Art Center where they displayed their work and mingled with their fellow artists and new found friends.
