SEPA is an association of amateur and professional painters who paint together regularly outdoors in S.E. Ireland. All artists are welcome. SEPA organises Ireland's 'Art in the Open' plein air festival. SEPA membership is free. NB. As with all Paint-Outs posted on Plein Eire, these events are simply notifications of intent by one individual to be at a particular place and time to paint. Each member's participation is entirely at his/her own risk. No responsibility for harm or loss of person or property on the part of anyone else is intended or implied.

Here are a few ideas for paint-out venues. Please add your own suggestions and we'll get a schedule together for the coming weeks. Your addfitional recommendations welcome.

Ballinkeele House

Newtownbarry House & Gardens

Dunamore Wood (Borodale) (no facilities)

Rosslare Harbour Lagoon


Wexford Beaches

Wexford Gardens

The Still Pond, near Enniscorthy

 As ever, it is weather permitting, so in case the organiser needs to cancel, please indicate by RSVP for each event so a single message will let everyone know if an event is 'On' or 'Off'.

In particular, it seems smaller villages where we have access to coffee and a bite and a chance to say'hello' are sought-after venues. Here are some suggestions:

Will you all be too busy eating legs of lamb and chocolate eggs this Sunday to go out and paint? Weather looking good. We're heading down to Tomhaggard today to move paint around on flat surfaces.

No plans for this Sunday, the weather looks a bit too wet cold and windy for my liking! Hopefully next week will be better.

Weather looks good tomorrow(today) if you want to post one? We had a few paint outs in March but only one or two people came out so I’m holding off a bit longer before posting weekly.

Any Paintouts happening soon? It's April already.

A photo from SEPA's last get together of 2018 to the Safe at Rosslare Harbour. If the weather stays mild, we may be out again very soon. Here's to a great 2019 with some inspirational paint-outs, lots of successful paintings and a marvellous AITO festival.

I can’t get out this weekend and showers are forecast so I think I’ll reluctantly hang up my plein air hat for this year- we did well to get as far into November as this! There is a life painting day scheduled for Sunday December 9th in Castlebridge; if anyone is interested you can find the Castlebridge Art Studio page on Facebook and get in touch to check availability of spaces. There’s also weekly life drawing on weds nights and portrait session on Thursday mornings. See you all soon!

It looks like we could need shelter on Sunday with showers forecast so Wexford town seems like a good plan. Meet at the riverbank hotel for coffee at 11am. The tide will be coming in and full at 4pm. I’m hoping to paint some of the boats on that side of the bridge but if it’s too wet might venture into the town for cover. Also a last chance to catch some of the opera festival exhibitions!
