Paint Out™ is an art event aiming to redefine 21st century en plein air art practice. Our core event, now in its fourth year, is the UK’s premier and only fully juried en plein air art competition, celebrating the talents of national and international artists before a wide and growing audience in the heart of medieval and iconic Norwich, as well as on the beautiful North Norfolk coast at Wells-next-the-Sea.
Plein Air – Art works carried out in the open air – chiefly with reference to painting.
The Paint Out competitions, however, accept any 2-dimensional media or mixed-media applied to a canvas/board/paper embracing drawing, pastels, oils, watercolour, gouache, acrylic, pen and ink, and even screen-printing. Innovation and originality are encouraged alongside traditional art forms.
The Paint Out Norwich 2017 competition, categories, prizes, event dates, and locations, for the plein air painting days during the Hostry Festival 2017 will run Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th October with artist workshops on Saturday 14th, a public ‘paintout‘ on Tombland and around the Norwich Cathedral area, Sunday 15th, and a gala private view and art sale on Wednesday 18th October. This will be followed by an art exhibition of over 150 paintings until 28 October at the Norwich Cathedral Hostry each day.
