The third annual Fresh Coast Plein Air Painting Festival will be held in beautiful Marquette, Michigan as a part of the City of Marquette Art Week.
The 2019 Festival will feature two segments:
On the evening of Friday, June 28, a Dusk to Dark segment will be held at Presque Isle Park. Artists who choose to participate in the Dusk to Dark may paint anywhere within the boundaries of Presque Isle Park, and emphasis should be placed on capturing the late day light, sunset, etc.
On Saturday, June 29, the main all-day painting segment will be held. Artists participating on Saturday may paint at any Marquette city or shoreline location; paintings must be created outdoors, on-site, and must illustrate or be inspired by real-life scenes of the area. A map will be provided showing designated painting areas.
The festivities will conclude with a very special reception and art showing at the Presque Isle Pavilion on Saturday evening, where over $2,500 in cash prizes will be awarded.
New to this year's Festival, registration has two levels: (1) Professional and advanced painters, and (2) Novice, intermediate, and/or recreational painters. It is up to the artist to place themselves in the appropriate category; the entry fee is higher for level 1, but so is the dollar value of the cash prizes.
Entry fees are as follows, to be paid upon check-in at the event when you bring your canvases to get stamped:
Friday - Dusk to Dark:
$10 pre-registered // $15 day-of registration
Saturday - All-Day:
$25 pre-registered // $30 day-of registration
$15 pre-registered // $20 day-of registration
