More than a dozen artists will set up easels at two Wausau locations Saturday to practice "en plein air" art for Paint the Town: A Plein-Air Paint Out.

The paint out is being organized by the Woodson Art Museum as part of it new exhibition, "Celebrating Summer: Plein-Air Painters of America" which opens Saturday and runs through Aug. 25. "En plein air" is a French phase meaning "in the open air," and artists paint onsite to capture scenes as they experience them. The artists will be located at the Eye Clinic of Wisconsin at 800 N. First St. and at the Wausau City Hall on McClellan and Fourth streets, from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The artwork will be on display during a Plein-Air Review from 5 to 7 p.m. this evening at the Woodson, 700 N. 12th St. People will be able to talk with the artists, and can make arrangements with the artists to buy the work if they wish. People will have another chance to see the artists, who are members of the Plein-Air Painters of America, from 10 a.m. to 1 pm. on Sunday, when they plan to work in the Woodson's sculpture garden.

For more information, people may log onto the Woodson's website at www.lywam.org.
