What is Art is in the Air?

Wet Paint Tent Show & Sale
Quick Draw Competition
The Quick Draw Competition invites local artists to participate in a quick two hour paint out in downtown Brevard. After the 2 hour painting period, artists line up on East Main Street to have their one-of-a-kind works of art judged by the Art is in the Air competition judges to compete for cash prizes and the opportunity to submit entries into Sunday’s “Wet Paint” Sale.
This event will be one of the most exciting experiences of the week. Together, artists and spectators are immersed in the creative process. See the scenes and how the artists interpret them. Smell the wet paint and get caught up in the excitement of watching paintings of downtown come to life before your eyes!
