Paint-Out reunion Sept. 24th

The CFPAA Artists group is sponsoring a paint-out reunion in celebration of when the plein air movement began in Florida. Ten years ago in September, a group of painters met on the website “wetcanvas” and organized an all-inclusive paint-out in Ozello, FL. From that day on, lasting friendships were formed and Plein Air Florida and many local art groups were created.  CFPAA was the Orlando-based group.  In celebration of how far Florida plein air painting has advanced in ten years, CFPAA is sponsoring a one-day reunion on September 24th in Ozello Florida. Painting sites have been mapped out and prizes will be awarded to the top three artists choice awards. After painting all day, there will be a showing of the art and dinner at Peck’s Old Port Cove, 139 N Ozello Trl, Crystal River. Many artists will be staying over Friday and Saturday night, making it a full weekend. Corporate rates have been secured at the Holiday Inn Express. 

There is no fee to join.  This is a good way to start off the painting season since it has been so HOT all summer long. Everyone is invited!! Pass the word.
