‘In Plein Sight’ is Gulfport’s third themed Art Walk since event’s October return
Gulfport, FL (March 31, 2021) – Gulfport’s First Friday Art Walk returns to Beach Boulevard on Friday, April 2 with a themed celebration of the rich and diverse plein air painting community in the region at ‘In Plein Sight,’ the third quarterly themed art walk since the signature event’s return last October. Nearly 20 plein air painters will join artists from across several other artistic mediums in this outdoor celebration of creativity and community.
The event runs from 5pm-9pm alongside the shops, restaurants, coffee shops and galleries that comprise the town’s cultural hub on Beach Boulevard and is hosted by the Gulfport Merchants Chamber. Upon its return in October, the event brought a creative redesign and socially distanced format, providing artists and visitors an open, outdoor space to celebrate art and community each month, as well as the introduction of quarterly themed events.
‘In Plein Sight’ welcomes emerging and professional plein air painters from across the region and state to show and sell their work in this scenic arts-loving community, as well as the opportunity to win cash prizes and other considerations.
As with all events hosted by the Gulfport Merchants Chamber, state and county safety protocols are met and exceeded under guidelines set forth in Gulfport STRONG, a heightened safety awareness campaign launched before the town’s resumption of public activities in September.
