Paint Garstang

Paint Garstang

We at Garstang Arts Centre, are hosting a new venture for us – a Plein Air (painting outdoors) competition to take place in and around the beautiful fairtrade market Town of Garstang on Saturday 3rd September 2022. Any medium will be accepted except Photography.

Artists can choose any location on the map below to paint and capture the essence of Garstang. We welcome artists both professional and amateur to take part with the chance to win cash prizes.

Visitors can enjoy watching original pieces of art being created in just one day (less than seven hours really) and take in all that our wonderful historic town has to offer.

A visitors guide and map of the artist trail will be produced when all registration forms have been returned. These will be available from Garstang Arts Centre and many other locations in Garstang.

On the day artists must sign in at Garstang Art Centre from 9am to confirm their attendance and have their blank canvas (or any medium except photography) stamped before heading off to their chosen location. (Please see terms below) They will return to the Arts Centre with their masterpiece no later than 4pm.

Judging will take place at 4.30 pm by acclaimed  En Plein Air artist Daniel Roy Sharples and prizes will be awarded at 5.00pm

The closing date for entry to ‘PAINT GARSTANG’ is the 13th August 2022 when the registration form, together with £10 entry fee and declaration of your painting location must be with the organisers.

We regret we cannot accept entries on the day.

We extend a very warm welcome and hope you will support us in this new event for Garstang.
