The judges at this year’s “Paint The Town – Southport Plein Air Paint Out” couldn’t decide on a single Best In Show this year, so they awarded a 2nd Best In Show to artist Christopher Reid for his pastel painting “Southport”. 80 artists from all over competed and participated in a wet paint sale this year. Despite the gloomy weather predictions, artists could be seen all over Southport, NC painting a variety of subjects and views.
