COTTELL PARK SUNFLOWER POP-UP PLEIN AIR DAY!  Saturday, August 15th from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.

RAIN DATE: Sunday, August 16th from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.

Here’s the plan. Artists are welcome to come to the park. The Arts Alliance will provide a few still life set ups that will all be sunflower themed. There is no fee to enjoy the park and paint. We welcome you. We thank you in advance for sharing with talents with the community. We are encouraging the community to come and watch you paint.

We will set up a number of still life areas around the park. We thank the Cincinnati Art Museum for their partnership in this event, as they will also contribute a still life display. There will be plenty of still life displays for you to choose from.  You are welcome to paint on the side of the field, but we aren’t encouraging that.

Artists Sales – we are planning some kind of online sale in the future. If you do sell you painting that day, we would appreciate a 20% commission from that sale.

We hope you enjoy the day! Please pack your own drinks and water. The Snyder House will be closed, but the park provides plenty of restrooms
