Can't wait for some PLEIN air FUN with my OOPS pards on the 28th!

OOPS August Paint Out date... Aug. 28, 2011.

WHAT: OOPS! August 2011 Paint Out
WHEN: Sunday, August 28, 2011 from 1pm (or earlier) until...

WHERE: Trent River Boat Access, Pollocksville, NC (on Highway 17N just before the Trent River Bridge turn right into public access area on the river.... shelter and restrooms available.)
NOTE FROM PATSY (Paint Out Organizer):
Let’s plan for August 28th. Maybe ask everyone if they’d like to have a little picnic afterwards, since there really is nowhere there to eat. There is only one restaurant there and it is closed on Sundays to the best of my knowledge. We could each bring a little something to share or bring our own individual brown-bag meals. Just need to let me know the count, and I’ll try to have water like Dean did last time since the weather is so hot. I haven’t been to Pollocksville yet, but will do so this week most likely Tuesday. The wildlife area is a right turn just before the bridge there in Pollocksville. I believe there is plenty of parking, and there is a covered picnic area with 2-4 tables. Not far from it is T-shaped pier and there are a few large shade trees in the parking lot. It’s not a large area, but I believe large enough to accommodate us.
WHY: SOME LIKE IT HOT!!!! Simply put... we LOVE gathering with like minded artists and painting outdoors!

Newbies welcome... all mediums and skill levels... simply show up with your gear and be prepared to have fun! No worries... there are NO art-snobs in our group!
What the heck is OOPS and how do I join the FUN?

Pollocksville, NC on HWY 17N

Turn Right here... just before you cross the bridge over the Trent River at the old train depot.

Plenty of docks and decks to paint from with views of the river.

Plenty of shade!

Shelter with picnic tables.

Just in case!
