Local artists are working en plein air (painting outdoors) throughout downtown Camas this afternoon.

The finished pieces will be displayed from 5 to 8 p.m. this evening at the Camas Gallery, 408 N.E. Fourth Ave., as part of the First Friday “Plein Air & Art Event.” Stop by and vote for your favorite plein air paintings.

All of the pieces will be auctioned off at the Sept. 9 Dinner in White on the Columbia, a benefit for the Washougal Library Building Fund.
