Paint for Preservation is a day-long event. As one of the most anticipated Wet Paint Auctions in the state of Maine each summer, Paint for Preservation presents a diverse collection of works by highly accomplished artists. Throughout the day, thirty-one selected artists will paint on site at designated public and private locations chosen to highlight Cape Elizabeth's natural beauty. The public is invited to watch participating artists work on location. A map of the painting locations will become available online and at the CELT office near the date of the event.
In the evening, a live auction and cocktail reception will be held and the newly painted pieces will be sold in competitive bidding for the unique and beautiful depictions of our natural world. The proceeds benefit the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust's initiative, Saving Cape’s Great Places, to permanently preserve local strategic conservation land.
