Island Fine Art Presents...

The 2006 Crescent Beach Paint Out

  Thirty of Florida's finest Plein Air artists created over 130 incredible paintings and drawings during four hot humid days in August. All works were produced on location in and around Crescent Beach and Anastasia Island. Our Opening Reception displaying these works was a grand success. But just in case you missed it, you can see all of the artwork created during the Paint Out right here.
