Kristen Moore painting at Basin Head during the 2017 festivalThe Montague Plein-Air Festival has a new name. Now called Points East Plein Air Festival, it returns to eastern PEI July 4 to 8.

“The new name better reflects the festival,” says coordinator Audrey Bunt. “While the exhibition of the paintings has always been held in Montague, our locations for painting days have been all over the Point East Costal Drive area and we wanted to reflect that we’re painting all over this beautiful region.”

This year marks the festival’s fifth edition and the closing public exhibition and awards ceremony will be held at the King’s County Playhouse on the evening of July 7, and throughout the day on July 8. This weekend will also mark the opening of the Playhouse’s summer season.

The Points East Plein Air Festival is open to all visual artists. Its aim is to promote artists and give them the opportunity to show and sell their art, as well as enjoy the experience of painting with other artists.

“Every year artists are returning bringing friends and family,” says Bunt. “We have grown substantially, requiring more space for the exhibition of the works painted over the four days. It is wonderful to see artists returning year after year. The festival is less about the competition but more of the camaraderie that the artists have during the event. Sharing ideas, methods and encouraging each other go out and paint long after the event is over.”

This year the grand prize has been increased to $1500 and extra categories have been added, including “best use of light” and “best watercolour.” Registration is at
