Shoot The Northern Prairie
August 16 - August 18
Northern Prairie Arts will again sponsor Paint the Northern Prairie in and around Watertown, SD. We are excited to expand our event to include the participation of photographers and writers in the year’s first Shoot the Northern Prairie and Paint the Northern Prairie – with words.
Photographers will meet on Saturday, August 10 and will have the rest of the week to photograph and print their work.
Plein Air Artists and Writers will create on August 16-17, 2019 – with everyone invited to an Early Bird “Quick Draw” on Thursday night August 15th in downtown Watertown. The “Quick Draw” takes place during Thursday Night Live with music and plenty of people in Historic Uptown Watertown. On Sunday, the event culminates with the traditional Wet Show and Sale.
The Watertown area offers many painting and photographic opportunities for plein air artists and for photographers: lakes and waterways, parks, historical buildings and much more. Maps of the area will be provided for all participants, including a map highlighting scenes that most inspired Terry Redlin’s works.
We will continue last year’s change of location with the home base for registration and the Wet Sale in the east end of the Watertown mall near the Signature Gallery and Studios. A Youth and an Adult Plein Air painting class will be offered prior to the event at the Terry Redlin Art Center. There will be a special youth registration and prize category in Paint the Northern Prairie.
Please contact ArtsNight@outlook.com for registration info. Feel free to share it with your fellow artists, photographers and writers. We hope you can attend the events scheduled – we are especially excited to have photographers and writers join in the fun of Paint the Northern Prairie.
We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones!
