How Many Artists Will You Find This Weekend? - Cape Elizabeth Land Trust


How Many Artists Will You Find This Weekend?

FRIDAY UPDATE: With the expected rain on Saturday, most artists are out painting already, with many returning Sunday. See the location list and map below and take your tour!

Beginning Friday, August 28, you can take a socially-distanced tour of Cape Elizabeth to find the Paint for Preservation artists at work capturing the iconic locations that highlight Cape’s natural beauty. The locations of participating artists are listed below. (Click here to skip to the list.)

Like so many events, Paint for Preservation has made a lot of accommodations to follow COVID-19 guidelines. Held over one weekend (or one day!) for the past 12 years, this year the auction goes online after the Artists Weekend, on September 12-13. A preview period from September 5-11 will allow interested buyers to view the resulting works of art before the bidding begins. You’ll still be able to purchase the ever-popular Mystery Boxes containing signed, smaller works by the artists in the online auction as well. 

Capping off the auction weekend will be the online CELTebration on Sunday, September 13th from 5:00-6:00 p.m. More details will follow.

We hope you will participate and donate to support CELT’s signature event.  Paint for Preservation is our only fundraiser, contributing nearly 25% of our budget. In addition to sponsorships from businesses and the artists donating a portion of art sales, CELT generally sells tickets, but the online auction is free. Your donation will help support artists who are facing difficult times, CELT’s educational programming, and the trails that so many people have come to rely on for respite and recreation.

Many CELT supporters have already donated the cost of a ticket to become members of our Inaugural Host Committee. Our list is growing every day, and you can join that list by clicking here, or you can always make a donation of any amount through our website.
