PAINT THE TOWN: Plein Air Paintout
Southport Plein Air paint-out is an exciting OUTDOOR event, sponsored by the City of Southport as a way to support artists in our area and bring public art to our streets. The event will take place on April 24th & 25th, our area’s most talented painters will paint Plein Air (in the open air). The public is invited to stroll our streets and watch as each artist turns a blank canvas in to a "one of a kind" piece of Southport art.

A WET PAINT Sale will be held on the lawn of Fort Johnston on Saturday from 4:00 until 5:00 at the Fort Johnston - Southport Museum and Visitors' Center located at 203 E. Bay, behind the NC Maritime Museum. Art enthusiasts will have a chance to take home one of these treasures in what we feel will become a collection that will be revered for many generations to come. The beauty is within our streets, the finished product is in the hands of the artist.

Artists are encouraged click this link to register online. No Registration Fee Required.
