Canaveral Seashore Paint Out

The Friends of Canaveral will host the first annual Canaveral Seashore Paint Out from Monday, November 8, through Saturday, November 13, 2010. 
Thirty of the most talented landscape artists from Florida and the Northeast will bring their paint boxes and easels to the seashore and surrounding areas in Mosquito Lagoon, Atlantic Center for the Arts, and historic downtown New Smyrna Beach.  They will create one-of-a-kind paintings "en plein air " (in open air).
More than 30 Artists will be painting from dawn to dusk for the five days of the Paint Out. As paintings are completed, they will be hung in an on-site “wet room” in the Eldora House and will be available for immediate sale. 

You can meet the artists at a Wine and Cheese Reception at Arts on Douglas, 7 pm, Wednesday, November 10. This event is open to the public. Paintings produced the first 3 days will be on display and for sale. There will be a Sunset Paint In at JB's Fish Camp on Thursday, November 11, 3-7 pm.  Open to the public.
There will be a Community Quick Draw and Family Fun Day at Canaveral National Seashore on Saturday, November 13th from 10am until 2pm. Bring your easel and paint with the pros. There will be free events for the kids.
