Mendocino Art Center’s
MENDOCINO OPEN PAINT OUT – A Plein Air Festival
September 16-22, 2019

The Mendocino Art Center (MAC) hosts the seventh annual Mendocino Open Paint Out (MOPO), a plein air festival. The Mendocino Coast, located along a beautiful expanse of the Pacific Ocean in northern California, is a spectacular setting for a plein air festival. Artists claim that the quality of light is unlike anywhere else in the world.

From the rugged surrounding landscape, to the bay and beaches, to the quaint Victorian architecture and water towers in the town of Mendocino, to the nearby vineyards and wineries, artists are sure to find abundant creative inspiration. And, you will remember the beauty and tranquility of the Mendocino Coast long after your visit.

Join fellow artists on the picturesque northern California coast for the Mendocino Open Paint Out.

• Compete for more than $9,000 in cash and prizes, including advertisements in Plein Air Magazine and Southwest Art.

• Sell your artwork in daily wet paint exhibitions in a professional gallery space

• Stay on campus, steps from the Pacific Ocean (book early, rooms fill quickly!)

• Meet and mingle with the featured artists at a complimentary pizza party
