The Castine Arts Association is proud to sponsor its first plein air festival on Saturday, July 27th, in Castine. Thirty five artists will be accepted to participate in this one-day art event. The day will begin at the Castine Town Common on Court Street at 7:30 a.m. where the event’s artists will register and then proceed to various locations within the Town of Castine to create one or more original paintings on site. The public will have the opportunity to visit these artists as they create their stunning landscapes of beautiful Castine. Then at 6 p.m., the arts association will host a public reception and artist award ceremony at the Maine Maritime Academy’s Harborview Room.  All art created during the day will be on display and available for purchase.
