Once again the region’s most accomplished plein air painters will gather in Northport for the 3rd Annual Plein Air Painting Event.

On Friday and Saturday, June 26th and 27th, selected artists will be set up in locations throughout the village painting their interpretations of the scenery that is so unique to Northport.

On both days spectators can observe the creative process from start to finish and talk with the artists as they work.

Sunday, June 28th, will feature an exhibition and silent auction for the “wet” paintings at LaMantia Gallery.
