Forgotten Coast Invitational
Now in the 11th year of documenting the landscape and culture of the last vestige of authentic “Old Florida”, Forgotten Coast en Plein Air, America’s Great Paint-out is among the world’s most prestigious plein air events. Artistic excellence and the production of investment quality art continues to be the trademark of the 10-day festival. As the event moves into its second decade, organizers are honing what makes the Forgotten Coast event exceptional. “With plein air events popping up all over the country, we realize the importance of focusing on quality and relevance. We have developed a three year program, transcending typical event content to focus on the reason why plein air painting is important, as well as how the process and the paintings contribute to a region’s resilience,” states Event Chair Joe Taylor.
