CAPE ELIZABETH — The Cape Elizabeth Land Trust is accepting submissions for its ninth annual Paint for Preservation.
The en plein air event will take place from July 8-10, followed by a juried wet paint auction on Sunday, July 10. The deadline to apply to be in the show is March 25.
Artists must submit two images of original plein air paintings to CELT on its website, capelandtrust.org. Elizabeth Moss, owner of Elizabeth Moss Galleries, will jury the submissions.
Over the three days of the event, artists will paint outside on land preserved by CELT. According to a press release from CELT, the auction will be held at “a scenic horse farm overlooking the Spurwink River.” Proceeds go to the artists and benefit CELT initiatives.
