We have some other plein air events happening during the exhibition:

Saturday May 23 2-4 pm  Rails End OPEN Golf Ball Painting Classic. Materials supplied. All we ask is that you leave your golf ball masterpiece behind so we can use it to raise funds for Rails End. We are delighted to have the participation of some local golf courses for this initiative.
