PSME hosts an annual early summer painting retreat weekend at Hotel Pemaquid, near Pemaquid Point Light in Bristol, ME. This retreat offers PSME members and friends with the opportunity to paint in stunning locations and attend two structured critique sessions and a pastel demonstration presented by a visiting artist. The retreat builds camaraderie between those attending and is a great way to meet new friends that share the passion for painting outside.

Annual Pemaquid Retreat 2018

May 31 - June 3, 2018

Hotel Pemaquid, Bristol, Maine

May 31, 2018    Wine and Cheese Fireside Welcoming Reception

PSME's Annual retreat now features a fireside cocktail party generously hosted by Hotel Pemaquid.  This Thursday evening event puts artists in position to start painting bright and early on Friday morning. It is a nice, relaxing way to catch up with friends, meet new folks, and to enjoy the beauty of the area and the hotel a little longer.  We seek a nice balance of plein air time and gathering time!

June 1–3, 2018   Painting Retreat

The rugged coast and indigo water of Pemaquid Point always inspire us for wonderful painting experiences.  The hotel's carriage house is available as a studio as well.  Plan to reconnect with your artist friends.  A visiting artist's demo, two optional critiques, and camaraderie make this an event all can enjoy.
