BELFAST — Habitat for Humanity of Waldo County holds a plein air event the last weekend of August.

Various professional artists will be painting in different locations around the city throughout the weekend starting Friday, Aug. 26. The event culminates with a live auction of their works Sunday, Aug. 28, at 4 p.m. in the Bayview Point Room, 15 Front St.

Stroll the city streets and explore Belfast’s beautiful parks Friday, Saturday and Sunday to watch some of the artists in action as they create the works that will be auctioned off. Then on Sunday afternoon, enjoy wine, hors d’oeuvres and live music while having an opportunity to bid on the newly created art. Also available at the reception will be smaller, unframed pieces of art in closed boxes for $250 each. The buyer takes a chance on which artist’s work is in the box.

Tickets for the auction are $20 and are available at United Farmers Market of Maine, 18 Spring St.; Mailloux & Marden Law Offices, 151 High St.; or at the door.

The artists who have committed to provide pieces for the auction are Ken DeWaard, Nathaniel Meyer, Peter Yesis, Stephan Giannini, Bjorn Runquist, Michael Vermette, Jill Hoy, Roberta Gosche, Olena Babek, Tollef Runquist, Maxwell Nolin, Eric Glass, Nancy Morgan Barnes, Alison Hill, Emily Trenholm, Sandy Dolan, Dianne Horton, David Hurley, Suzanne Roberts, Joanne Parent, Holly Smith, Lesia Sochor, Archie Barnes and Susan Tobey White.

Not all artists will be painting each day, so take time throughout the weekend to see the various pieces as they are created and then attend the final auction to see all the completed pieces.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Waldo County.
