For Artists

The City of New Iberia Teche Plein Air Painting Competition takes place in early March. Throughout competition week, artists are allowed to paint throughout seven parishes in the Acadiana region that includes a variety of viewscapes from bayous and cane fields, to live oaks and azaleas, to boats and historic houses. Each night, we try to provide a space for artists to gather, enjoy a good meal, and unwind from a day of painting.

For information regarding this year's competition, view the page links below.
