8th Annual Plein Air Festival

Sunday, March 14 through Saturday, March 20
Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery

The 8th Annual Plein Air Festival is known to be the premier Plein Air Festival in the Southeastern United States. The festival has been revamped to meet our current times. Twenty-four national award-winning artists have been invited to exhibit their fresh works in the gallery and online during this highly anticipated celebration of representational art that captures our environment as history in the making. Participants can get involved virtually or in-person in this non-stop, week-long festival. The festival kicks-off with an in-person Paint Out Competition at the beautiful Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. The artists will then paint en plein air (outdoors) in picturesque locations throughout the country, competing against one another for cash and prizes. ‚ÄčArt enthusiasts have the opportunity to learn from the most highly regarded plein air artists in the country through live demonstrations and workshops. One-of-a-kind art can be purchased at the gallery or online through a virtual catalog and online store. Competition pieces will be available for sale Friday, March 19, after a live-streamed awards ceremony.¬†
