Annual Wekiva Invitational Plein Air Paintout


Wekiva Island is proud to be sponsoring the 2011 Wekiva Paint Out to benefit the the Wekiva Wilderness Trust, a non-profit citizen’s support organization.


Come and witness an exciting phenomenon known as Plein Air painting. Approximately 30 of the best national landscape painters will be painting along the river for an entire week! These artists paint outside “en plein air,” meaning “in the open air” and will produce around 250 paintings during the week, all of which are for sale as soon as they are hung.
