The Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery, 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta,  is hosting the 8th Annual Plein Air Festival Sunday, March 14 through Saturday, March 20, 2021.  This art festival is known to be one of the premier Plein Air Festivals in the United States. The festival has been overhauled to meet social distancing protocols for the current times. 

Twenty-four national award-winning artists have been invited to exhibit their fresh works in the Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and online during this highly anticipated festival of “representational art that captures our environment as history in the making.” 

The festival kicks-off with an in-person “Paint Out Competition” at the celebrated Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm Beach. The artists will then paint en plein air (outdoors) in picturesque locations throughout the country, competing against one another for cash and prizes. Art aficionados can learn from the some of the most highly regarded plein air artists in the country.  The festival will present art through live demonstrations and workshops.

Unique 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 purchase Friday, March 19, after a live-streamed awards ceremony.
