Artists are invited to participate in an 8-day, community-wide Plein Air Paint Out in the nation’s oldest city, St. Augustine. The event celebrates the town’s historic, architectural and coastal beauty through the time-honored tradition of painting “en plein air”, a French term for painting in the open air.
Special events and activities will take place throughout the week including demos, a Quick Draw, Awards Ceremony and more.
Locals and visitors to St. Augustine will enjoy seeing artists on location at their easels creating work in real time. Artwork will be for sale at the St. Augustine Art Association Wet Room.
Selected works will be featured in a juried exhibition, “Where Art Meets History” May 4-27, 2018, at the St. Augustine Art Association. Awards total more than $2500, including a $1000 Best in Show.
