Mendocino Art Center’s
MENDOCINO OPEN PAINT OUT – A PLEIN AIR FESTIVAL
on Northern California's Beautiful Mendocino Coast September 24–26, 2021 Registration is Now Open!

The Mendocino Art Center (MAC) hosts the Mendocino Open Paint Out (MOPO), a plein air festival established in 2013. The Mendocino Coast, located along a beautiful expanse of the Pacific Ocean in northern California, is a spectacular setting to paint en plein air. 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 will remember the beauty and tranquility of the Mendocino Coast long after visiting.

Join fellow artists on the picturesque northern California coast for the Mendocino Open Paint Out:
• Compete for prizes

• Sell your artwork in wet paint exhibitions in a professional gallery space | Select paintings will also be curated at the end of the event for a special Mendocino Open Paint Out Exhibition continuing through October 17
