An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
17 plein air artists from Eastern North Carolina converged on the historic town of New Bern, NC to participate (September 12-13, 2009) in the International Plein Air Painter's (IPAP) 7th annual Worldwide Paint Out (WWPO). The paint out is designed to bring recognition to the tradition of painting "en plein air". The event brings plein air artists from all over the world who agree to paint outdoors on the same date by organizing events in their local area. Plein air painters from Onslow, Craven, Beaufort, Carteret, Wayne, Pamlico, and Pender counties were present for the special 2 day event.
