From Our Editors
Among the clink of glasses and convivial conversation of a favorite bar, an unusual sound can be heard; the scrape of brushes on canvas, the ketchupy sound of paint spouting from bottles, the instructions of an experienced artist. This is the noise of Paint Scene, which turns local bars and restaurants into a studio for amateur painters. Students work, perhaps for the first time, with provided canvases and brushes, following along to produce depictions of pastoral forests and pouring wine. All the while, they chat and share drinks with their fellow painters, stopping briefly to comment on the excellent brushwork on display in their hummus plates.
