Please note: If you would like to participate as a artist during this event, you must contact us to RSVP by Wednesday, November 12, if you have not already done so.
After a brief hiatus, the Anonymous Society of Artists will resume our regular meeting schedule in late November, beginning with a plein air drawing and painting session at an exciting new location: the Bayfront Marin House Bed & Breakfast in Downtown St. Augustine. Marin House owners, Sandy and Mike, have graciously invited us to draw and paint on their historic waterfront property from any one of a number of gorgeous vantage points. Their outdoor brick patio is lush with green grass and flowers and offers scenic views of the historic house. Artists are also invited to work from the upstairs balcony which overlooks the Matanzas Bay.
In contrast to our outdoor painting adventures at parks and boat ramps, we’ll enjoy a little hospitality this time, with chairs, ice water, and coffee provided as well as bathroom access. Guests of the B & B will be enjoying breakfast on the patio in the morning, so please be courteous. Also, photos will be taken to help promote the Bayfront Marin House and our art group. If you would prefer not to be photographed, just let us know.
