Weekend Painting Event
A weekend event has artists from all over coming out to paint local scenery. The Alabama Plein Air Artist organization is holding an event for its members in Gadsden. Members from all over the state of Alabama travel to different locations to paint natural scenery. Member and retired elementary art teacher Joyce Palmer says the experience is her favorite part. The event will feature about a hundred artists painting scenes from around Gadsden and Etowah County. Palmer says some people are planning to paint in the downtown historic area while others will make their way to the Williamson Farm in Hokes Bluff.
