YANKTON -Yankton Area Arts council invites plein air artists from
South Dakota and the region to set up their easels September 12 and
13, 2008 for a fun-filled week-end of painting and socializing. The

except for the optional artists dinners.
According to Yankton Area Arts Council Executive Director and one of
the organizers of the event artist response through pre-registration
has been good. Artists can register Friday or Saturday but if they
plan on attending the artists dinner they should pre-register so the
event coordinators know how many artists to prepare for.
On Saturday September 13, 12-1:30 p.m. Pierre artist Jim Pollock and
Sioux Falls artist Steve Randall will give a program about their
experiences painting on location. Also on Saturday from 4-6 p.m. the
public is invited to meet participating artists at a wet paint show,
sale and artists reception.
The event is open to all artists and anyone interested in
participating should contact Jan Garrity, Yankton Area Arts Council,
