Local artist captures 3rd Street in plein-air painting
At lunchtime, we walked outside and were met by overcast skies and fall temperatures – but that meant a comfortable outdoor painting session for local artist, Angie Sinclair.

Angie is preparing this image of the New Hanover county Courthouse, for the celebration of the 275th birthday of Wilmington NC, to be held along the riverfront this Saturday from 10am-2pm.  275 plein-air paintings like this one will beautify Water Street, each depicting visions of the Port City.
