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. 

 For photos of SEPA's previous paint outs, click on this link: SEPA photos

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:

 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!

So sorry we will not be there, as we so enjoyed meeting up and painting with Louise and her camper van each summer for many years! AITO will never be the same with her gone.  Please extend our sympathy to Louise's daughter Elaine and family.

Louise Treacys daughter Elaine has organised a paintout in her memory on Saturday- come along or join in by painting where you are.. 

This Saturday August 1st at 11:30am we are celebrating the life of our wonderful Mam, Louise with a Paint Out at Ladys Island, Wexford. Everyone is welcome to come join us and raise a paintbrush to mark the life and passing of an incredible force of nature Louise.

In case I missed sending this to anyone, I'm just going to post here. Ned has been asked to do a second Portrait Drawing Workshop, which will be held Sat. 10th  Let me know if you'd like to book your place ? Thanks

Hello Artists,

Pity about the weather today, especially as the Bay Garden is so lovely. However, I have a contact at Cheshire Home in Shillelagh, and they would love to have us paint there. Lots to paint: Beautiful stately building, plus mature trees and grounds. Saturday afternoons are best for them, so should I see if this Saturday 20 July would be convenient for them?
