Paint Sea on Site, July 22 and 23, 2017
Every summer (July 22 and 23, 2017), the Lunenburg Art Gallery hosts a wet paint sale – Paint Sea on Site. As many as 70 artists converge on Lunenburg for a two day painting extravaganza.
The artists set up their easels all over town and the surrounding area. Paint Sea on Site sale is a wonderful opportunity for the public to observe artists at work and to have the chance to buy work they’ve been watching the artist create.
The artwork produced each day is sold in a silent auction. Some buyers have been known to follow a runner carrying a favoured work back to the Community Centre… the bidding gets pretty intense sometimes. Proceeds from each painting are split between the artist and the Gallery.
