Call for artists application
Deadline: 31 Jul 2015
Submission to Paint Out Norwich Core and Nocturne Events is free! If you are selected as a participating artist a £30 fee is required.
This year, selected artists can participate in daytime and nocturne sessions as well as a group-draw overlooking Norwich from Mousehold Heath.
An expanded and dynamic Paint Out Norwich is planned for this second year following the success of last year’s inaugural event. The artists will be stationed at city venues such as Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, Bishop Bridge, The Lanes, Tombland, Norwich Market, the Forum and other favourite sites in Norwich.
The October 23rd ticketed preview gala, awards ceremony, and auction will showcase the artwork produced during the competition and a panel of experts are to judge the works of art and award the winning selections. Leading regional auctioneers TW Gaze of Diss will be conducting an auction of specially selected competition work. Last year’s auction was attended by 200 people with excellent sales results.
The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday October 24th and will run for one-week at the Norwich Hostry then move to the Maddermarket Theatre exhibition space and close at the end of November. All works are for sale during the exhibition.
Chosen artists will benefit from:
- £5000 in Awards
- Exhibition of work for over 1 month and on-line sales following
- Public Auction of one competition work
- Eminent judges from Art World
Paint Out is a multi-faceted event aiming to redefine en plein air art practice. It is the premier juried en plein air competition in the United Kingdom, celebrating the talents of national and international artists to a wide and growing audience in the heart of medieval Norwich.
