Frenchtown’s favorite local holiday, Bastille Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time for our second annual Paint-Out! The event will be held Saturday, July 16th (during Bastille Day) from noon until night, in Frenchtown, NJ. Painters can bring up to 3 small finished paintings, along with cards and brochures. When choosing a location, use common sense… Do not block sidewalks! The day’s festivities are for everyone, not just the painters :).  Closed streets are also available locations, except where events are being held.

Unfortunately there is no exhibition following the event this year, due to scheduling conflicts. However, this is still a great opportunity to be seen and have fun! Selling off the easel IS permitted.

The event is free, but registration is required. Please email jschmidtberger@epix.net  to reserve a spot! Here is a map noting the recommended and not recommended locations:
