Plein air in Lake Worth saw artists in our lovely laid back community. Throughout the past three days artists were spotted with their easels. They covered our neighborhoods from Royal Poinciana, Downtown Jewel, Tropical Ridge, Mango Grove and of course Parrot Cove.
The completed art works depict a wide variety of colorful quirky cottages . The artists courageously endured our tropical Florida heat. This was the 14th International World Wide paint our where En Plein Air painters around the world participated in tandem. Groups gathered in Australia in England to Rio from the Florida Panhandle, to Tampa, to Lake Worth. The Lake Worth Art League organized this event for our area. And will again next year for the 15h Annual World Wide paint out.
The cottage owners were all delighted and offered the artists umbrellas, cold drinks, chairs and just out right generous hospitality. Artists were not confined to the comprehensive self guided driving and walking tour map available from our Information Center located at the Cultural Plaza. Many artist toured the city prior to selecting the gems that appealed to them most.
A bi- product was photographers and even a visitor from Miami not here to paint, had a group with her, she follows me on face book and just wanted to do the walking tour.
Your all invited to the Reception held Saturday Sept. 17, 7-9 pm to meet the artists and view the completed impressionistic renderings of our Lake Worth Cottages.
