For the second year, the residents of Louisiana, Missouri invite artists to literally “paint their town.” On Saturday, September 21, visual artists from all over will descend on Louisiana to paint “en plein aire,” the hills, valleys, buildings and people of their town.  Spectators are encouraged to travel around the area to see the artists at work. 

Saturday evening, there will be an exhibition and sale of the paintings the artists created during the day. Cash prizes will be awarded for First, Second and Third Place.

Louisiana, Missouri is on Highway 79 overlooking the Mississippi River.
