Artists are invited to register for the 10th annual Paint Out weekend planned for Sept. 27-29 by the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley. Artist Carol Platt of Mount Dora, Fla., is shown painting in Ligonier during the 2014 event.

The picturesque Ligonier Valley will once again provide vistas for the annual Paint Out weekend hosted by the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley.

For the 10th annual plein-air painting event, set for Sept. 27-29, artists are invited to paint scenes from state forests and scenic overlooks to flowering gardens and Ligonier’s quaint Main Street, according to a release.

Following three days of painting, a wet sale is planned for Sept. 30 at the museum at 1 Boucher Lane, Ligonier Township. Participating artists will exhibit their freshly painted works and have the opportunity to sell them to visitors.

This year’s Paint Out will offer $500 in cash prizes. Juror will be nationally known artist Jaime Cooper, whose studio and gallery is in Ligonier.

A $30 nonrefundable fee is required for participation in the Paint Out.

For information and registration, call 724-238-6015 or email

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
