The paintings on display and up for bid at the Plymouth Arts Center were created outdoors/plein air during the Arts Center’s annual “Paint the Towns, En Plein Air” event.  Artist Dan Rizzi of Plymouth is graciously coordinating the event as a fundraiser for the Plymouth Arts Center.  Artists from all over the state of Wisconsin and beyond are participating in this eighth annual paint-out and will be competing for over $3000 in cash awards. Place your vote on Friday night for the painting that best depicts Plymouth and Elkhart Lake in the Viewer’s Choice category.  Unsold paintings at the Silent Auction will be on display and for sale through October 13th only at “Buy It Now” fixed price.
