Artists return to East Liverpool | News, Sports, Jobs
The Ohio Plein Air Society and artists from the Eastern Ohio Plein Air Club will return to paint in Liverpool city center this year, this time at the East Liverpool High School Alumni Association All Class Meeting. Painters will set up easels throughout downtown and paint from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 2. A parade and sale will take place in front of the Museum of Ceramics starting at 3:30 p.m. The public is invited to come downtown and watch the artists at work and stop on the sidewalk to show a sale. Artists look forward to capturing the excitement and nostalgia of the reunion as well as the unique architecture and ambiance of the pottery capital of the world. Twenty-five artists participated in last year’s event held in May as part of the Ceramics Museum’s 40+1 anniversary celebration. This year, like last year, some participating artists received regional, national and even international recognition for their work. Several companies lent their support to the event, including Plein Air Magazine, Streamline Publications, Liliedahl Art Instruction Videos, Rosemary & Co. Artist Brushes, Judson’s Art Outfitters and Golden Artist Colors. The Ceramics Museum graciously offered its facilities as a home base for the artists throughout the day.
