The National Park Service turns 100!
This centennial will kick off a second century of stewardship of America's national parks and engaging communities through recreation, conservation, and historic preservation programs. As part of the centennial celebration, Friends of Canaveral and the National Park service hosted the
2016 Plein Air Paint Out… Invitational

This year's Paint Out the first week of October featured 26 professional artists invited from around the country to paint En Plein Air within the National Seashore and around the historic community of New Smyrna Beach. Unfortunately the event was cut short after 5 days by Hurricane Matthew but by then the artists had created a fine collection of beautiful paintings and watercolors that are still available for purchase.

Take a look at all of the incredible works produced by this year's Plein Air artists. Everything you see in this web Gallery is now available for purchase at the new location for our Plein Air Gallery located at Arts on Douglas, 123 Douglas St. just 2 blocks from Canal St in downtown New Smyrna Beach.

Canaveral National Seashore
Canaveral National Seashore contains 57,000 acres of some of Florida’s most treasured landscapes. It offers refuge to 14 threatened and endangered species, including three species of sea turtles that nest each summer. Also within the seashore there are more than 150 native archaeological sites, none better known and preserved than Turtle Mound. Pioneer Florida is also preserved in the Park with sites like Eldora House and Seminole Rest. The Seashore is yours to enjoy and yours to protect, now and for future generations.
