Come to northeastern Oregon and the little town of Joseph, where they will "Paint the Town Plein Art". Artists will be sprinkled around town with their easels painting a scene of their choice of the town of Joseph, while passersby enjoy the progress of each painting. You can visit with the artists, and talk about why they chose to paint a landscape or street scene, or some other aspect of Joseph. The artwork will be available for sale. A "Quick Draw" competition will also test the talents. Come for the day, and stay for the week along Hells Canyon Scenic Byway.
