Taking place now through March 11 in Tequesta, Florida, 35 of the country’s top plein air painters are participating in the 10th Annual Plein Air Festival of the Lighthouse ArtCenter. “The walls are already filling up with fresh art,” said Executive Director Jeni Licata.
These artists will compete for over $15,000 in cash and prizes. The week kicked off with a Paint Out Competition at Harbourside Place in Jupiter with daily opportunities at the ArtCenter Gallery to view and purchase the freshly painted works.
The week also includes free plein air painting demonstrations at picturesque locations across the area and paid workshops with Natalia Andreeva, Stephen Wysocki, and Lon Brauer.
On Friday, the Collectors’ Party & Sale takes place, where you can mix and mingle with the artists and fellow art enthusiasts while feasting on Lighthouse ArtCenter’s signature hors d’ oeuvres. All pieces are available to purchase, including competition pieces. This year’s judge is Kenn Erroll Backhaus.
They’ll finish out the week on Saturday with a Small Works Sale and Live Painting Event.
For more than 58 years, Lighthouse ArtCenter has provided artistic programming and cultural opportunities to the people of Palm Beach and Martin Counties in Florida.
