The artists will begin each day at first light and continue painting until sunset. Their finished artwork will be available to view and purchase at the Wekiva Island Wetroom/Art Gallery, open Monday thru Saturday. The artists will be leaving Sunday morning. Each year the artists produce approximately 300 paintings during their stay, all of which are immediately hung for sale. This year we are participating in the Steinway Society’s POP-UP-PIANO event. Our artists have actually painted the steinway piano with their great work. The pianos will be auctioned off later in the year and will benefit the arts in Seminole County. We will be playing the piano all week long in the gallery and invite the public to participate, as well!! The Wekiva Island (formerly Wekiva Marina) is sponsoring the Wekiva Paint Out and is located at 1014 Miami Springs Road in Longwood. Visit their website to learn more about all the action at www.wekivaisland.com .
