Participating artists in the Paint Out return their completed works ready for display to the Glen Arbor Art Association late in the day for a juried exhibit and “wet painting” sale and reception. Our Guest juror will award three cash prizes. A fourth prize, the People’s Choice Award, is determined by popular vote at the reception.
The Saturday, August 6, Wet Painting Sale and Reception is open to the public from 5:30-7:30 pm at GAAA, 6031 S. Lake Street, the entrance drive is across from Cherry Republic. Paintings may be purchased on a “first come” basis beginning at the sound of the gong at 5:45 pm.
Plein-air painting refers to the technique of painting out-of-doors which was initiated by the French Impressionists in the mid-nineteenth century. The challenge is to paint or draw directly and spontaneously from nature during a very limited period of time.
