A plein air painting weekend where over 80 artists will set up their easels at various locations throughout Annapolis Royal.

This popular event draws onlookers and art buyers from around Atlantic Canada and beyond. Emerging and established artists from across Nova Scotia find a special spot that inspires them to paint, sculpt, carve, photograph or sketch.

Spectators can meet the artists at work while watching the creative process unfold on the boardwalk, the wharf, at Fort Anne National Historic Site, the Historic Gardens. 

As their paintings are finished, volunteers deliver the artwork to the Paint the Town Gallery at The Port Royal Legion, Branch 21, 66 Victoria St., Annapolis Royal, where patrons can bid during the silent auction process (from 10am – 6pm daily), or grab the piece of their dreams immediately as each piece has a “buy it now” price (this option available until 5pm daily).
