.The 6th Annual Capitola Plein Air Competition in Photos

From Nov. 1-6, more than 30 artists can be spotted around Capitola through rain or shine. Umbrellas and easels can be seen on sidewalks and beaches; some artists posted in areas not so obvious, tucked away in alcoves or planted as far away as Pleasure Point. 

Using oil, acrylic, pastel, charcoal, gouache or whatever they choose as their means of expression, the culmination of all the work will be on display 11am-4pm, Nov. 7 at New Brighton Middle School Auditorium. Several awards will be given out, including “Peoples’ Choice” and “Artists’ Choice” accolades. Some pieces will be selected to become part of Capitola’s art collection.
