Latest Activity: Jul 12

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:

Hi Margaret. You're joined up and should see any new paint-outs posted. There's also a Whatsap group in parallel with this site and you will probably want to be included in it. Message Sheila MacNally to add you, if you wish to avail of it.

I'm only getting to grips with this site now.  I would love to be let know about paintouts with the group if you wouldn't mind me joining you.  I won't be able to attend all but would love to be able to attend some of them.  I will hopefully get to meet you at the art in the open event

Hi all, it looks like a wet one this sunday but we might get lucky. Im choosing Johnstown Castle as this weeks paintout location in the hope that we can find shelter if we need it. Meet in the cafe area at 11

 PAINTOUT ROSSLARE SAFE HARBOUR  Sunday May 30th  Finally the weather we’ve all been waiting for! That does mean the Hook and Kilmore locations will be mobbed but the safe harbour should be ok. Meet there with your takeaway from 11am

PAINTOUT CLONEGAL SUNDAY MAY 9th Meet 11am at the castle tea rooms which are open for takeouts. There is a €6 euro entry fee but you can save by bringing your own coffee. The weather looks dry, could be windy but there should be shelter around the castle and gardens.

**PAINTOUT SUNDAY MAY 2nd**  Tintern Abbey. A firm favourite with lots of subjects, shelter,  and plenty of space to paint in a safe and socially distant manner- and the bluebells should be out! Meet at the car park 11am. Bring your mask, flask and PMA ;)  Looking forward to seeing everyone!
