Each February, artists paint the wonderful buildings, original cottages, fountains, plazas, and courtyards of the Third Street South Historic District. The Birthplace of Naples, which includes The Pier, Crayton Cove, The City Docks, and at its center, Third Street South provides so many beautiful vignettes for the artists to capture. Come watch the artists create and if you find paintings you can’t live without, come to the auction and bid on your favorites. Details on Painting Days and Auction Party are below. Profits benefit David Lawrence Center which provides mental health and substance abuse treatment and counseling to Southwest Florida children, adults and families.
