For the 14th year, Paint for Preservation will continue the tradition of award-winning plein air artists fanning out across Cape Elizabeth for a weekend of painting its iconic land- and seascapes. The selected artists donate a portion of art sales to CELT to support its conservation, stewardship, and education programs.
Artists selected to participate August 13-15 include:
Lyn Asselta • Olena Babak • Charles Fenner Ball • Catherine Breer • Ken DeWaard • Marsha H. Donahue • Mike Dorsey • Carol L. Douglas • Cooper Dragonette • Erin McGee Ferrell • Margaret Gerding • Frank Gregory • Lindsay Hancock • Alison Hill • Jill Hoy • Anne Ireland • Marguerite Lawler • Janet Ledoux • Nathaniel Meyer • James Mullen • Tessa O’Brien • John David O’Shaughnessy • Colin Page • Liz Prescott • Holly Ready • Kathleen Robbins • Bjorn Runquist • Matthew Russ • John Santoro • Janet Sutherland • Graham Wood
Says Claudia Dricot, chair of the planning committee and one of its founders, “Even though our auction is online for another year, we’re confident that this stellar list of artists will create great enthusiasm for Paint for Preservation. This is recognized as one of the premier art auctions in Maine, and the caliber of the artists is a huge part of its repeated success for CELT.”
The public is welcome to tour painting locations, meet the artists and watch them work. The resulting paintings will be auctioned online two weeks later, August 28-29. A live viewing will be held that weekend at a location to be announced, and the paintings will be featured online for preview during the prior week.
