A Plein Air Painting Festival in beautiful Tamworth, NH
THIRD ANNUAL PLEIN AIR INVITATIONAL
The Tamworth Visitors Council (tamworthusa.com) has planned a wonderful week-long experience for artists, collectors and art lovers to enjoy and celebrate these artists and their works in nature here in Tamworth. Wet Paint is dedicated to preserving the rich artistic legacy established by many early Plein Air Artists.
Wet Paint returns! Invited artists from around the country, as well as local celebrity artists, will be painting scenes in Tamworth during the third annual, week-long celebration, from April 29-May 5, 2019.
The week will kick off with a meet and greet welcome spaghetti dinner at The Preserve at Chocorua on April 29th, where artists can mingle with local and visiting art collectors and art lovers. Nightly, local businesses will host an artist’s reception or village walk for guests and visitors to see the day’s accomplishments. There will also be a Quick Draw Competition which challenges the artists to complete a painting in three hours or less and a “Crayons Matter,” the Marcia Abbott Scholarship Award that will benefit ArtWorks Chocorua Creative Arts Center Fund, for art education programs for children.
The Collector’s Gala will have a big city feel with small town hospitality featuring an Art Show under a magnificent Sailcloth Tent at The Preserve at Chocorua. The Gala is filled with artists, art lovers, collectors and some of the finest plein air fine art you will find anywhere.
