Area artists are invited to set up their easels in Marquand Park in Princeton on Saturday, May 19, in the third of a series of the Arts Council of Princeton’s “Paint Out Princeton” programs.

The 17-acre arboretum, located at 48 Lovers Lane, offers wide, gently sloping lawns, winding paths and over 140 tree specimens, among them a dawn redwood, rare evergreens and flowering trees, including a variety of magnolias.

The woodland section of the park includes huge specimens of native trees: beech, hickory and oak, as well as groves of rhododendron.

The Paint Out, for ages 15 and older, is free and will be held from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. Pre-registration is required. Contact Evie Timberlake at timevtim@gmail.com.

The public is invited to visit and observe the artists at work.
