Description

Exciting news!

On Sunday 8th September, Cass Art and Jen Gash (Sky Landscape Artist of the Year) will launch the inaugural "Bristol Plein Air Paint Off" competition.

Central Bristol has a rich landscape ranging from the soft slopes of Brandon Park, the historical, industrial cranes and harbour, the modern architecture of Millenium Square and the traditional architecture of the cathedral and university, not to mention the iconic suspension bridge - a feast for "Plein Air" painters whatever their medium or practice may be.

Entrants will gather at Cass Art Bristol around 9.30 for a 10.30 start, to give us time to sort out paperwork etc. Painting will end at 3.30, when we will gather at Cass Art for preliminary judging and shortlisting.This gives you 5 hours painting time, in total. The minimum age for entering is 16 years. The maximum canvas size is 100cm square due to space restrictions in the Cass Art gallery space.

There will be prizes for the following categories:

- Young Talent Award (16 - 21 years, to be awarded at 5pm on the day)

- Cass Art Plein Air Award (overall winner to be awarded at 5pm on the day)

- Peoples Choice Award (to be decided following a public exhibition where members of the public can vote for their favourite piece.

Prizes and judges to be announced... but there will be some lovely things !

There will be a £10 entrance fee per person, with 50 places available. Entrants will need to supply their own materials, tools, lunch etc and be responsible for themselves during the day. Cass Art will be providing a discount for materials on the day, should you need further supplies!

On the day, please arrive in good time so we can complete the paperwork, which will include a waiver and also permission form for photos etc. You will also be given a unique entrant number, stickers will be applied to your intended supports and it would be helpful for you to have a mobile phone so we can find you and visit you during the day!

Between 3.30 and 5pm will be shortlisting around 20 artists whose work will be exhibited for the week. Artists not shortlisted will need to take their work home on the day, so please allow time to come back to Cass Art at 5pm for presentations and to collect work.

PLEASE NOTE: Jen Gash and Cass Art are not responsible for participants safety and wellbeing. Please make sure you have sun screen, umbrellas, food etc and are able to take care of your own needs.
