Wekiva Island will host the 6th annual
Wekiva Paint Out during the week of March 5-11th.
Twenty-nine phenomenal landscape Plein Air artists
will be painting all week in and around the
Wekiwa Springs State Park and Wekiva River Basin. This great event benefits the Wekiva Wilderness Trust.
Most Plein Air painters are nature lovers, using the great outdoors as their primary studio, trying to capture light, color and natural beauty of our spellbinding Wekiva River Basin. This style of painting allows the public to interact with the artists while they paint and pffers a great opportunity to purchase an original work of art from a well known artist.
The artists will begin each day at first light and continue painting until sunset. Their finished artwork will be available to view and purchase at the Wekiva Island Wetroom/Art Gallery open Monday thru Saturday. The Gallery will be open daily from 10-7PM.
Each year the artists produce approximately 300 paintings during their stay, all of which are immediately hung for sale.
On Wednesday, March 7th some of the artists
will be holding workshops.
