Callaway Gardens Spring 2011

To all PAG members.  If you are interested in receiving an invitation to the 2nd annual Spring paint out at Callaway Gardens, please send a message to  with your name, mailing address, and phone number. This is a juried by invitation only event similar to the one held in April 2010 and is a great opportunity to join other artists from all over. Callaway would like to have a good PAG presence for 2011.  No details are available so far as exact dates but should be announced sometime in November for the 2011 spring event, show and sale.  Also, they are planning a quick draw event that is not a juried event that all can participate in.  Get you name on the list so you can receive the information as it is released even if you don't plan to submit work for the jury process.  If you don't live in Georiga, but are a member of PAG... you should submit your name, address and phone number. You are PAG.

Not a member of PAG..... please join the "Ning" site or PAG on facebook.  That alone will make you a member.

UPDATE:  The Callaway invitations went out last week so sending a note to Phyllis is no longer an option to get an invitation.  They will, however, be putting more information on their web site, so continue to look for that.

Tunnel Hill Battle Paintout

We'll be painting both days at the annual "Battle of Tunnel Hill" --- and you're invited to join us!
Two tents are already set up for the artists - one is for display of artwork done onsite and the other is a base of operations.
There is no participation fee except for the $5 main gate entry.
The Tunnel Hill Historical Foundation has graciously allowed us to set up (FREE) - so we're asking each artist to make a donation to the THHF. This can be a percentage of any artwork sales or another amount determined by each artist.
For more information, please contact
or call 706-270-1626.

Plein Air Georgia - It's HOT

Well, Georgia weather has turned hot, hot, hot and most plein air artists are seeking out that cooler early morning or late afternoon light. Even as the days heat up quicker, it's still fun to get out and paint. So... let's paint.

There is a small group of painters who will be painting around Pine Mountain, Georgia including some spots inside Callaway Gardens on June 15, 16, 23, 24 and 25. Anyone wishing to attend any of these days need only to send a message to before June 14 so arrangements can be made for entry into the gardens. This will be an informal event with no awards or opportunity for sales but still good for passing out business cards and making new friends. Mr. Cason's Vegetable Garden "Victory Garden South", is always great for painting and the magnolia trees are really showing off their best blooms right now. Some over night accommodations may be possible on certain days, so be sure to write if you think you might be able to come and would like to stay over night.

PAG would also like to recognize new and renewing members for the last couple of months. They are:
