Artistic excellence and the production of investment quality art continues to be the trademark of this 10-day festival. As the event continues, organizers are honing what makes the Forgotten Coast event exceptional. “With plein air events popping up all over the country, we realize the importance of focusing on quality and relevance. We have developed a three year program, transcending typical event content to focus on the reason why plein air painting is important, as well as how the process and the paintings contribute to a region’s resilience,” states FCenPA Board President, Joe Taylor.
The invitational features internationally acclaimed artists, as well as, several "Florida's Finest en Plein Air" artists honored as Plein Air Ambassadors.
