The International Plein Air Painters (IPAP) 7th Annual Worldwide Paint Out is a gathering of plein air artists from all over the world who agree to paint on the same days to promote the tradition of painting "en plein aire".
Eastern North Carolina artists will converge again this year on the historical town of New Bern on September 12 and 13, 2009 to do their part. All artists are to meet at the gazebo at Union Point Park near the downtown waterfront at 9:00 AM each morning. Groups from Onslow, Craven, Carteret, and Beaufort counties have already expressed interest in participating. If you are a plein air artist... mark your calendar and make plans to join us.
More details to come as the event approaches... meanwhile mark your calendar to save the dates and click HERE to register on the IPAP's site. Registration is FREE and not mandatory but is encouraged to show your support.
