to the 430 friends, artists, sponsors and volunteers who joined to make CELT’s 16th Annual Paint for Preservation a huge success! The predicted thunderstorms held off to give us a stunning summer afternoon to celebrate the beautiful land and seascapes of Cape Elizabeth and the plein air artists who brought them to life.
