Call for Artists: Mendocino Open Paint Out, September 19-25


Registration is now open for the Mendocino Art Center’s plein air festival, the Mendocino Open Paint Out, September 19-25.

The Mendocino Art Center hosts the Mendocino Open Paint Out, a plein air festival established in 2013. The Mendocino Coast, located along a beautiful expanse of the Pacific Ocean in northern California, is a spectacular setting to paint en plein air. Artists claim that the quality of light is unlike anywhere else in the world.

From the rugged surrounding landscape, to the bay and beaches, to the quaint Victorian architecture and water towers in the town of Mendocino, to the nearby vineyards and wineries, artists are sure to find abundant creative inspiration, and will remember the beauty and tranquility of the Mendocino Coast long after visiting.

Enjoy daily plein air painting, wet paint sales in a professional gallery, demonstrations by featured plein air artists, a Quick Draw Competition and Sale, and a celebratory awards presentation, among other activities.

Registration is first come, first served | Registration deadline: August 12
