NSB Paint Out Schedule
The Gallery Opening Reception is a private event for our 2020 NSB Plein Air Sponsors and Patrons. This event as well as our “Mask”uerade Party are benefits to becoming a Sponsor or Patron. Learn more about becoming a Patron or Sponsor.
The smell of Coffee, Pastries and Croissants will greet you as you mingle under the Pavilion at the Marine Discovery Center and Artists Workshop campus. We have 20 highly accomplished artists that have graciously agreed to begin their art panels with 4-5 pieces of art that they created during the COVID quarantine. Our attendees will receive a first look at these amazing pieces of art.
We are also excited to announce that our event will start off with a fast paced Blending of the Brushes. Blending of the Brushes is a progressive paint where 5 artists will consecutively complete a painting in a 90 minute period of time. We are slated to be featured on a local news station but cannot disclose the name of this station until we get closer to the event.
All art created throughout the week is brought into the Wet Gallery and displayed on each artists panel. It is referred to as a Wet Gallery because the art has yet to dry. In fact, it does take some time for most pieces to dry as many are oil or acrylic. All art displayed is available to purchase unless there is a colored dot, which signifies it has already been sold.
We have taken measures to ensure our guests feel safe and socially distanced throughout our event. We will limit the number of people in the gallery at one time, we have a directional flow throughout the gallery so people can freely walk throughout the gallery and feel comfortable. Our gallery will be available to view online, via two TV monitors located in the MDC/AWI Pavilion, or in the Wet Gallery.
Please refer to the Paint Out Schedule for daily Wet Gallery hours.
Come join us as we celebrate the 10th Annual New Smyrna Beach Plein Air Paint Out with a “Mask”uerade Party. With masks a requirement, we thought…why not make it fun!? We will have a contest for the most creative mask with the winner receiving a $50 Gift Certificate to The Garlic. Enjoy music, food, refreshments and of course your last chance to preview and purchase the art created throughout this four day event. This year’s Cover Art by Antwan Ramar and our Battle of the Brushes art will be silent auctioned throughout the week with the winner being announced at 7pm on Saturday Oct 24th. While tickets to this event are available within our Sponsor & Patron Pledge program, you are also able to obtain tickets online. Tickets are $50 per person but in return you receive a $50 Art Credit. This credit can only be used during the NSB Plein Air Paint Out.
