CALL for ARTISTS 15th Annual Paint Sea on Site

PSOS 2016 - CALL TO ARTISTS-page-001

PAINT SEA ON SITE – REMINDERS for 2016

  • Paint Sea On Site – Lunenburg Community Centre – July 16th and 17th

  • Registration is now open. Please contact Christine at the Lunenburg Art Gallery (902)640-4044 or drop into the gallery to sign up as soon as possible.

  • The registration fee is $25.00, which includes two light breakfasts (coffee and muffins), bagged lunches on both days and a “Mix and Mingle” Reception on Saturday as soon as the auction closes. (approximately 5:00 pm)

  • When you register, please let Christine know if you plan to attend the Saturday Mix and Mingle Reception and if you have any food allergies or sensitivities.

  • Children’s registration is $10.00 and includes a basic painting kit, a 30 minute art lesson, a yellow Paint Sea on Site ball cap and cookies! There are two sessions on Saturday 16th, morning and afternoon. An adult must accompany young children when they go out to paint. For more information, call Susan Beavan at: (902)766-0126.

  • This year, by popular request, we will only have ball caps for paid participating adults and children. If you have a t-shirt from a previous year, please wear it.

  •  PLEASE NOTE: Artists may begin painting on Saturday morning and go on until Sunday afternoon finishing this year at 3.30pm on both days. This is in the best interest of the artists as it gives the bidders more time to peruse and bid on paintings, NO work will be accepted after 3.30pm.  

  • SECONDLY – THIS IS MOST IMPORTANT: Please do not bring in any previously completed paintings. This is an unfair advantage over artists who paint on the allocated days.  All work displayed must be done on the 16th and 17th of July. We ask that all artists write PSOS on the back of their paintings when they bring them in.

  • There are artists who like to paint early on Saturday morning and register a little later and this is fine. 

  • Thank you so much for all your support for The Lunenburg Art Gallery, year after year. 

  •  We look forward to welcoming you all back to our non-profit Lunenburg Art Gallery’s largest annual fundraiser.

Please Join Us on Thursday April 28 at 7 pm

To Truro Art Society Members and any artists who would like to join our group.

You are invited to attend and participate in our next TAS general meeting on Thursday April 28 at 7 pm. We will meet in the NSCC Drawing Studio (Room 321 of Forrester Hall) and hold a 15 minute meeting comprising a list of exhibitions and a brief treasury report.

We are extremely excited that Peter Labelle will lead us in an introductory session to drawing from a live nude model with a focus on exploring gesture drawing, movement and tracking the mass of the figure.  The TAS will cover the fee for the model, but members are asked to bring a large newsprint pad and charcoal.

We have room for about 25 participants and we hope to see many of you there!
