The Community Council for the Arts is hosting it's second annual Plein Air Paint Out and Juried Exhibition April 30- May 9, 2009. This paint out coincides with the Kinston/ Lenoir Chamber of Commerce's signature event, The BBQ Festival on the Neuse.

Plein Air Painters of all skill level are invited to paint our historic downtown and charming waterfront on April 30 & May 1st from 9- 5 PM. An entry fee of $15 will allow you to enter the competition and compete for the 1st, 2nd or 3rd place prizes. Our first place winner will be featured on the 2010 Festival On the Neuse posters!

At the close of the day on Friday, participants are invited to bring their best three pieces to the Arts Center to be on display for the week. The sale of all art work is strongly encouraged.
