The Central Fraser Valley Graphic Guild is holding a plein air event taking place on Oct. 1.

This event, plein air (or painting outdoors), will take place in and around Stave Falls.

Artists will select spots in or near the BC Hydro Visitors Centre, Hayward Park or spots north on the Florence Lake Forest Service Road, formerly Burma Road, as far as Sayres Lake.

Registration starts at 9:30 a.m., at Hotties Italian Restaurant, following which artists will go to their selected spots to paint.

The Guild is recommending all artists paint with a buddy. The artists will reassemble at 2 p.m. at Hotties with paintings in various stages of completion and completed for judging.

Prizes will be awarded at 3 p.m. Selections from the completed artworks will be shown at the House of Fine Arts in Abbotsford for the month of October.

Visitors and observers are welcome. The BC Hydro Visitor’s Centre will be open and free that day as well.
