This OPM Paint-Out will immediately follow the Plein Air Washburn (PAW) festival being held June 8-10. (Washburnculturalcenter.com/paw-fest).
We encourage OPM members to come for the Saturday June 10 PAW activities, paint with us and attend the Saturday evening gathering at the Washburn Cultural Center where our local artists will be showing their work from the event.
OPM Paint-Out Time on Sunday June 11: 10:00 am at Maslowski Beach, Ashland
Where to Meet:
For painters attending the Saturday June 10 PAW activities, a schedule will be posted at the Washburn Cultural Center, 1 East Bayfield Street, Washburn WI.
If you only attend on Sunday June 11 for the OPM Paint-Out we will meet at 10:00 at Maslowski Beach near the pedestrian crossing for the trail. Some may want to paint at the beach, walk the trail into the slough or make the very short drive into Prentice Park and access the slough from there. We will meet at the Sand Bar Restaurant at Blue Wave on Maslowski Beach for lunch.
Description of Paint-Out:
Fish Creek Slough, located across from Maslowski Beach in Ashland WI is a large wetland where Fish Creek enters Lake Superior. There is a path and boardwalk than transects the slough and leads from Highway 2 to Prentice Park. This meandering waterway has lots of texture, and there might be waterfowl. Maslowski beach has views of the bay and the city of Ashland.
OPM members who come to Washburn on Saturday can contact Joanne or Susan for suggestions on accommodations for Saturday night. There are motels in Washburn, Host Joanne has two bedrooms in Ashland, and Host Susan has plenty of room for tents and hammocks on the lake just south of Washburn.
