Plein Air painting in (and around) Perkins Cove is a time-honored Ogunquit Art Colony tradition. That’s why all of the artists and art-lovers will be throughout our town, along the Marginal Way and down to Perkins Cove on Saturday, September 10th, 2022 for Ogunquit’s 2nd Annual Perkins Cove Plein Air Painting Event. The Rain Date is September 11th, 2022.
If you attend Ogunquit’s 2nd Annual Perkins Cove Plein Air Event, you’ll be able to enjoy the timeless sight of plein air painters in the act of putting brush to canvas in (and around) Perkins Cove — the heart of the Ogunquit Art Colony — from 9am through 2pm. Then, between 2:30pm and 3:30pm there will be judging in Perkins Cove for Professional and Amateur awards PLUS the David Lussier Gallery of Excellence Amateur Award. Perkins Cove will also be the site of a Wet Paint Sale (from 3:30pm until 5pm) where you’ll have the chance to purchase a one of a kind piece from the “beautiful place by sea” that you’ll cherish forever before the paint is even fully dry! There will also be historical tours, art history talks, artist demonstrations, AND live music in Perkins Cove!
