As its first post-pandemic program, AMR Artists Inc. presents Paint The Town, a series of five events spanning over five months (from June to October), and taking place in a different town each month: Arkville – June 26; Roxbury – July 24; Halcottsville – August 14; Fleischmanns – September 5; and Margaretville – October 9. The fee for participating artists is $25 for all five dates. The artists can also sign up the day of the event.
This Saturday, July 24 from 10 am to 1 pm, artists will be painting at the Gould Church on Main Street in Roxbury. The location will be marked with colorful balloons to make it easy for visitors to find the artists. At 1 pm there will be a gathering to discuss the artworks produced throughout the day.
The organizers feel that this is an opportunity for the community to witness the creation of new works of art en plein air, and engage with the participating artists.
Launched in 2012 as AMR Open Art Studios Tour, AMR Artists incorporated in 2020, the year of the pandemic, as a non-profit organization to better serve the community of artists active in the Arkville, Margaretville and Roxbury area of the Central Catskills, upstate New York.
This program is made possible in part with funds from the Community Foundation of South Central New York, and the Delaware County Department of Economic Development.
