WELCOME TO THE 25th ANNUAL WET PAINT

Wet Paint is a weekend-long community art-fest drawing visitors from across New England in celebration of regional artists. Participating artists spend the day creating art and bring their completed “wet” works back to the Museum to be installed in the Ilgenfritz Gallery. Bidding begins at Saturday evening’s Preview Party, continues into Sunday, and culminates with a live auction of a juried selection of diverse images on Sunday afternoon.
