Plein Air Paint Out in Downtown Jacksonville, NC
Scores of these special plein air artists will converge on Uptown Jacksonville on April 14, 15, and 16, 2016 for a paint out competition. Not only will these artists have the opportunity to paint scenic and historic places like the Pelletier House along the banks of the New River, the USO, the old Jacksonville Train Depot, the City Hall Tower, the Freedom Fountain, beautiful Wilson Bay, the Beirut, WWII, Vietnam, and 911 Memorials… but they have a chance to win award money for their paintings. Special workshops and southern hospitality add to the experience. Spectators will enjoy seeing the artists at work and be able to purchase their original paintings at a Wet-Paint Sale to be held during the afternoon of Art Block outside the Council for the Arts building. Please register now for this spectacular event.
