    This exciting week-long, community-wide event invites artists to choose among the landmarks, hotels, buildings, open spaces and cityscapes that reflect the culture and history of the nation’s oldest city. In past years, as many as 70 artists from around the region and the U.S. have participated in the Paint Out.

Pieces that are selected from submitted works will be featured in a juried exhibition, “Adventures in Plein Air,” at the St. Augustine Art Association that will run from May 6 to May 29, 2022. Awards total $2,500, including a $1,000 Best in Show prize.
