by Pentagoet Concierge - On July 27th, 2013, Castine held its first Plein Air Festival.  This one day event was comprised of 35 juried artists painting stunning landscapes from all over our beautiful village of Castine.  The event was a huge success and has led to the second annual Plein Air festival planned for July 26th, 2014.  The juried artists will once again be capturing the essence of Castine through their artwork during the day, followed by a reception in the evening.  Pictured here is local artist Josh Adam painting by the edge of the British Canal.  Read more about the festival at the Castine Patriot.
