The Piney Woods Plein Air Paint Out! on April 25 and 26 will be the first big event sponsored by the group as part of the Thomasville Rose Festival.
Many of the artists participating in the event will be in Boston on the morning of Saturday, April 26, to paint at Hardscrabble Farm followed by a lunch at The Accidental Gallery. The event will close with an art exhibit and sale that evening from 7 to 8:30 at Wiregrass Gallery. Tickets for the exhibit and sale are $15 and may be purchased at Wiregrass Gallery at 109 S. Broad St. in Thomasville.

The Boston Summer Outreach Camp is accepting applications for the 16th annual camp from June 2 to July 3. The camp, which is open to all children ages 5 through 15, has limited space, and camp director Delores Hugans urges anyone interested in the camp to register as soon as possible. Hugans said, “The camp is a fun and safe place to send your child for five weeks during the summer.”
Even though there is a small cost per week per camper, donations are needed to provide for all needs of children during the camp. The camp will offer games, swimming, movies, arts and crafts, computer skills, lunch and snacks. Several trips to local historical places are planned during the camp.
To register your child or to make a donation, contact Hugans at 229-498-5441 or Boston City Hall at 229-498-6743.
