Published 4:40 pm Friday, July 30, 2010

Saluda artist Jim Carson recently returned from Door County, Wisconsin, where he participated in the week long Door County Plein Air Festival.

Many artists from Hawaii to Maine to Florida and North Carolina attended. Door County has been named one of the top 10 vacation destinations in the country by Money Magazine, so there were numerous painterly sites.

There were events for the artists and Palette Sponsors each night, some required painting events and a quick paint contest in Fish Creek Park, after which the wet paintings were sold at an auction.
