Could your home or business inspire a painting?
Organizers of the upcoming East Sac Paint Out are looking for candidates to immortalize on canvas in the McKinley Park neighborhood.
On Sunday morning, 17 plein air artists will paint landscapes in and around the park. "Plein air" is devoted to capturing outdoor scenes using natural light.
That afternoon, the still-wet paintings will be displayed and sold as part of a fundraiser to keep the park's Clunie Community Center open.
Supporters will celebrate the Clunie Center's 75th birthday at a free public party from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the center, located on 601 Alhambra Blvd., Sacramento.
"On that Sunday morning, you may run across artists all over the neighborhood, painting," said Claudia Bordin, co-chair of the event. "In the afternoon during the celebration at Clunie, we expect a few of them to be painting near the center."
The artists scheduled to paint include: Deladier Alameida, Mike Bagdonas, Marie-Therese Brown, Reif Erickson, Philippe Gandiol, Debbie Gualco, David Lobenberg, Sergio Lopez, Eddie Park, David Peterson, Dana Phillips, Robert Sandidge, Robert Steele, Stephanie Taylor, Randall Tillery, Marti Walker and Beth Winfield.
"Several other communities in California sponsor significant plein air festivals," said Gualco, also a co-chair. "This event in East Sac presents a great opportunity to expose plein-air painting to the general public."
