13th Annual Just Plein Fun Painting Event

 

When you are selling your home during the summer months, potential buyers will definitely enjoy walking into a cool and comfortable home. Try turning the air conditioning on a few degrees cooler than you normally would so that is does not turn on during showings or open houses. This will also compensate for lots of doors being opened and closed.  Potential buyers will stay longer and take longer looking your house, which is in your favor.

 

The 13th Annual Just Plein Fun Painting Event is being presented by The Huse and Skelly Studio Gallery. The event will begin on Monday, July 30th and run through Friday, August 3rd. During this exciting plein air event, you will have a chance to watch ten award-winning artists paint scenes from Balboa Island. They will be painting from sunrise to sunset. All the works will be available for purchase. Stop by the gallery for a free Just Plein Fun Passport, which can be entered to win many prizes, including gift certificates to local restaurants and boutiques. On Friday, August 3rd, there will be the “Brush Off” on Marine Avenue from 4pm to 6pm. Also, on that evening, at 6:30pm at the Huse and Skelly Studio Gallery will host an Artists Awards Gala and Reception. The gallery is located at 229 Marine Avenue on Balboa Island.  For more information about this local event, see their website at: http://www.debrahusegallery.com/debrahusegallery/Debra_Huse_Gallery.html.
