A “Quick Draw” is an exciting event that includes a plein air painting competition, exhibit, and sale. This event is open to all artists. The participating plein air artists will be painting on-site around the LBIF campus and on the North End of LBI for two hours. Visitors can observe their creative process and watch unique works of art being created. At the end of the Quick Draw, these works will be on display and for sale at the LBIF. Paintings will be judged and prizes will be awarded by invited jurors. A special prize will be awarded to one artist who is enrolled either in high school or a college program.
