Save the Date: 12th Annual Paint for Preservation Sunday, June 30

It’s coming – CELT’s largest event and fundraiser for the past 11 years! Mark your calendar and plan to join us for Paint for Preservation 2019, CELT’s 12th Annual Wet Paint Auction. We’re very grateful that the Holden family has agreed to share their beautiful home at Garrison Field as our hosts on Sunday, June 30. 

During the weekend of June 28-30, thirty (30) artists will paint outdoors at designated public and private sites chosen to highlight Cape Elizabeth’s natural beauty. The Call for Artists will go out in February. Artists are juried, and the selected artists donate a portion of the art sales to benefit CELT’s work to conserve local conservation lands. On Sunday, the newly painted artwork is auctioned live at a tented cocktail reception that attracts more than 400 people each year.

Between 60-70 volunteers contribute to making this event a success. Claudia Dricot, one of the event’s founders, is chairing the planning committee, which has already begun meeting each month. There’s a lot to do! Everyone can help out in one way or another — if you’d like to join in the planning or help on the days of the event, please email patty@capelandtrust.org.

Are you a plein air artist who would like to participate? Please see our prospectus for application procedures. The deadline to submit is March 22.
