2013 Paint Out
Saturday, May 18
Every year when spring fills the air and colors the gardens, artists from “all over” are invited to Burnsville and paint for “just one day.” The Paint Out is open to anyone in the WNC region working in all painting and drawing mediums. All ages and skill levels are welcome.
On Saturday, May 18, participating artists check in at the TRAC Burnsville Gallery between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. Painting materials are validated and a $25 fee is paid. Artists may use any painting or drawing medium or process. Once the materials are validated, artists venture to their chosen location; it can be anywhere they can get to and back by the deadline. In the evening, artists return to the TRAC Gallery by 5:00 p.m. with their paintings and titles and prices. There they also frame and price their artwork.
Awards are presented to First ($500), Second ($300), and Third Place ($200); and in the Student ($15) and Honorable Mention categories. That evening a coffee and dessert reception is held in the Gallery. Folks come to meet the artists they watched all day, view the work, and applaud not only the winners but all the participants. Paintings from the Paint Out are on display for several days following the ceremony.
After you view all the art, come stay with us at the Switzerland Inn or the Diamondback Motorcycle Lodge and grab a meal at the Chalet Restaurant.
