Artist Opportunities

Call for Artists

Location: Southport, NC

There is still plenty of time to register to paint in the 2021 Southport Plein Air Festival,
which is coming up soon on June 18-19. For those artists who have invested time and
energy painting in a studio, this is a great opportunity to try your hand at capturing the
great outdoors en plein air, or, in the open air.

Pre-registration is $40 until June 4, then $50 up to and including the day of the festival.
This is a two-day non-juried event ending in a wet paint sale open to residents and
visitors eager for just-completed artwork featuring Southport’s beautiful coastal
landscapes. There is no limit on medium, quantity, or size and painters retain all proceeds

from the sale of their work. Registrants may also win awards judged by established local
artists, ensuring free registration for next year’s festival.

The event is sponsored by Up Your Arts and the City of Southport. Registration here!

Payment can be made online or by check mailed to Up Your Arts, P.O. Box 11326,
Southport, NC 28461. More information is also available on the Southport Plein Air
Festival Facebook page.
