4th Annual Plein Air Festival Highlights Nationally Recognized Artists Painting At Sites In Palm Beach County

The Lighthouse ArtCenter 4th Annual Plein Air Festival takes place March 8 through March 12. Nationally recognized, award-winning artists from around the Country will paint throughout Palm Beach County, depicting scenes from the beaches and natural Florida landscapes to the quickly disappearing old Florida homes and residential areas. Known as “Paint-Outs,” the artists will be visiting seven different outdoor areas to paint the varied landscapes and cityscapes.  The Rickie Report shares the details here, as some events require reservations.
