Paint the Town, Waldoboro's annual plein air event and art auction, returns Saturday, Aug. 6. Many well-known artists will rendezvous in one of the Midcoast's hidden gems and spend the day painting select views of the historic village and surrounding countryside.

The fresh art will be auctioned off at day's end, following an artists' reception featuring fresh lobster hors d'oeuvres and local wines from Cellardoor Vineyard. Preview starts at 5 p.m. and the auction at 6 p.m. at 995 Main St. Suggested donation at the door is $10. All proceeds benefit local charities.
