August 30 Old Town

Per Nancy Albrecht's suggestion, this Saturday let's meet in Old Town at the north end of the triangle, at Wisconsin and Lincoln. This would give people a chance to paint at the biggest Farmer's Market right across the street on Clark (a site the Old Towner's "Love") - or in the neighborhood. That should do it for Old Town sites as we prepare for the Old Town show this fall.

Mapquest directions are here.

TIME 8:30 a.m.

Let's meet away from the air show traffic at Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg. There is a nature preserve and a "heritage farm" on the same property--Volkening Farm.

Per Stephanie's email: "We will get a free booth to sell whatever paintings we want. We won't have to pay commission on paintings we sell. Free parking. Painting on the grounds. We can paint on Sat - and Sunday is open to whomever wants to stay. There will be a baseball game re-enactment from the 1800s and civil war re-enactments. Lots of interesting things to paint. They mentioned that people frequenting this fair are hungry for artwork of the grounds. There will be an auction to which Beck is donating a painting."
