Opportunities to enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area this summer are about to increase with the arrival of volunteer artist Margie Lopez-Read and en plein air art for all ages and backgrounds.

According to Cape Perpetua managers, Lopez-Read has accepted an invitation by the Siuslaw National Forest to become the first artist-in-residence and will be engaging visitors on July 18-19, Aug. 15-16, and Aug. 22-23 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. at a spot at Cape Perpetua.

En plein air art is simply a French expression for painting outdoors, which Lopez-Read will not only show, but lead others in the process. While painting on her own canvas, she will set up an easel so that visitors to the Cape that wish to try their hand at painting the beautiful surroundings will be able to do so with her. Children are also highly encouraged to participate and Lopez-Read will take time to help in the painting.
