12th Annual Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival

March 2-8, 2025

This juried event brings a selection of the country’s top plein air painters to Tequesta for a week of outdoor painting. These artists, painting outdoors, or “en plein air,” will compete for over $15,000 in cash and prizes. The week kicks off with our Paint Out Competition at Harbourside Place in Jupiter. Join us daily at the ArtCenter Gallery to view and purchase the freshly painted work of our talented artists. Check out the free plein air painting demonstrations at picturesque locations across the area. On Friday, add to your art collection at our fabulous Collectors’ Party & Sale. Mix and mingle with the artists and fellow art enthusiasts while feasting on Lighthouse ArtCenter’s signature hors d’ oeuvres. All pieces are available to purchase, including competition pieces. Finish out the week on Saturday with our Small Works Sale and our Live Painting Event at the ArtCenter Gallery. Learn from the masters and enroll in one of our Plein Air Workshops offered before and after the festival.
