Paint the Town on tap in New Preston

The New Preston Congregational Church will host its biggest fundraiser, the 10th annual Paint the Town, on July 5.

Artists will arrive at church in the morning before spending the day painting at a location of their choice in the area.

The event is rain or shine.

Ed Martinez, Deborah Chabrian, Zufar Bikbov, Lorraine Ryan and Lynn Wellings are among the artists participating.

Artists will return to the church at 3 p.m.

The public is invited to a reception with the artists and enjoy music by local musician Dave King at 4 p.m., at which time the paintings will be displayed.

At 5 p.m., there will be a live auction of art.

Following the live auction, additional paintings by participating artists will be featured in a silent auction.

Credit cards will be accepted.

Proceeds from the event will be divided between the artist and another local nonprofit organization.
