Paint the Town, Midcoast Maine's delightful plein air event and fresh paint auction, is returning Saturday, Aug. 5.  Natalie Masse and Jan Visser again will coordinate and host this year's event at their property in Waldoboro's Historic Village, 995 Main St., former home of the Roaring Lion B&B.

The annual one-day event, which provides artists with an opportunity to paint from unique and private vistas around the town, will culminate in a reception featuring live music, local wines and fresh lobster rolls, followed by a live auction of the day's compositions. Artists can download registration forms from Paint the Town Waldoboro's Facebook page at or pick one up at the library, 958 Main St.

Proceeds benefit Waldoboro Public Library, the Lion's Club, Medomak Valley Land Trust and the Waldoboro Volunteer Fireman's Association. To request a registration form via email, obtain additional information or learn about sponsorship opportunities, contact Natalie Masse at
