Events will attract tourists to our region to participate in large-scale plein air (open air) events to stimulate our tourism economy. Pre- and post-marketing for these events will be national in scope, accessible via social media and professional artists’ websites. Images by the best artists often result in exposure by national plein air and other cultural magazines.
Artwork will remain in Thomasville through resident purchases; other pieces will find their way to homes and galleries in Sarasota, Savannah, Jacksonville and throughout the region; many more will ship far beyond our borders, showcasing our magnificent natural environment and way of life. The opportunities for exposure are limitless.
Collaboration with the many area tourism associations is a win-win. Pines & Palms’ artists will be able to capture and elevate existing area high-profile events like the Rose Show and Festival and Victorian Christmas.
