Paint for Preservation – 2016

Thank you for making Paint for Preservation 2016 a stunning success!

Ninth Annual
Wet Paint Auction Benefit and Raffle

Sunday, July 10, 2016
Spurwink Farm


On Friday, July 8, Saturday, July 9, and Sunday, July 10, thirty artists from Maine and beyond – all participants in CELT’s 9th annual Paint for Preservation Wet Paint Auction – braved the sometimes cold and rainy weather to set up easels in some of Cape Elizabeth’s most scenic locations. On Sunday evening, these artists were joined by nearly 400 guests at Spurwink Farm, a bucolic working farm, for a tented reception and live auction. All paintings were sold, with proceeds shared between CELT and the artists. New to the event this year was a Mystery Box Art Sale which quickly sold out. Proceeds of that sale, too, were shared between CELT and the artists.

With appreciation we recognize:
