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:

Ballinkeele House would be a super place to paint, a variety of subjects to paint.

A good time was had by all. And the finale imprompto exhibition on the railings was a booster. Its in the diary for 2018.

Nice to be involved:

Town of Books was a well-run and fun event that dovetailed well with plein air painting.

Spoiled for Choice....

Pleasant day in Graiguenamanagh today. Spotted Michael Kehoe and Mairead Holohan among the crowds of bookworms. I intend to return tomorrow hoping for a little more sun than today. The forecast is clear until late afternoon when there may be a shower. Coffee 10am - 11.15am at the Duiske Inn and meet up there again in late afternoon if you have Graiguenamanagh paintings to show.

For those who prefer trees to narrow boats, join Jane Meyler for a paint-out at John F. Kennedy Park, New Ross for Heritage Week. See Jane's Facebook Page for further details.

....You could even do both!

Geraldine Donohoe sent us this message today : Nancy Gillespie has asked me if you would kindly post on the Plein Air Sites that she would like to sincerely thank everyone from the Plein Air community who sent wonderful messages of condolence and support and all who were in attendance at Terence's Funeral Service. Nancy would also like a special thank you to Michael Keogh for organising the Paint Out in The National Stud in Terence's memory and to all who participated.

I'm going for the free lunch. No, wait. I'm going for the free coffee.

Are they inviting us for a paint out or just to view the books?
