Cuttyhunk Plein Air | Saturday, June 18
Rain Date Sunday, June 19

After two years of painting-in-place somewhere not on Cuttyhunk Island, artists will once again board the M/V Cuttyhunk in New Bedford, MA and travel across Buzzard’s Bay on Saturday, June 18, with Sunday as the rain date, for the Cuttyhunk Plein Air Festival.

In case of downpour or forecast for steady rain, the festival will be held on Sunday, June 19.
If drizzle or spotty showers are predicted, the organizers will offer porches where artists would be welcome to set up and paint.
