The Be Here en Plein Air Art Festival & Competition

plein air micheal 252dpiThe Downtown Beaufort Development Association and the Arts Council of Carteret County are proud to host the 3rd annual Be Here en Plein Air Competition and Wet Paint Sale Saturday, May 13th, 2017. This collaborative arts event attracted 21 artists in its first year and paid out $1000 in cash prizes. We also paired up 6 paintings with new owners at the post-competition sale!

Artists of all skill levels ages 16+ are invited to sign up. Participants will have just over four hours to find a spot in downtown Beaufort, create their pieces and set up for judging. .Art lovers are encouraged to drop by the competition headquarters, John Newton Park on the Beaufort waterfront at Front and Craven Streets (next to Dockhouse Restaurant), to pick up some information before strolling the streets and watching the artists as they work.
