All serious plein air painters are invited to participate in the Charlotte, North Carolina Garden Club’s 59th Annual Mint Museum Garden Tour. If you RSVP, you can paint in one of the private gardens, sell your paintings, and donate 20 percent to the Mint Museum.

“Flame Azalea Study,” by Scott Boyle, oil, 8 x 10 in.

The Mint Museum Garden Tour is an RSVP event with a required ticket. To RSVP, e-mail Scott Boyle at [email protected] and indicate which home —a list can be found at —you would like to paint and which day or days; the event must be coordinated so there won’t be too many artists to any one home. There is no cost to participate, but artists are asked to contribute 20 percent of any sales during the event. For more information, visit
