Are you a painter? Looking for an opportunity to paint in an invigorating environment? Then you might be interested in the following announcement from Karen Kinser, organizer of the 1st Annual Paint Out In Norfolk, VA.
“Out & About Norfolk” – 1st Annual Paint Out
CALL TO ARTISTS! All 2-D mediums
Nov 30 and Dec 1
Over $2000+ in awards
1st Place – $1000 Purchase Award
Sponsored by the Bank of Hampton Roads, Norfolk, VA
Karen Kinser’s Studios at Monticello in the historic Monticello Arcade, is presenting this new event in Norfolk, VA.
Artists, this is a chance to get out of your musty studios and escape your 10×10 white caves . . . and come paint and play nicely with others! (sic)
I’m making every effort to create a well-planned First Class – Artist Friendly – For & About Artists Event! Ads have been placed and email press releases have been sent to: Art Calendar, Virginia Living, Artshow.com, Artline, Tidewater Women, and a huge mailing list of networked art centers and working artists.
Awards are growing . . . as I write, they are approaching $3000. (I am a ruthless fund-raiser with lots of “markers” to collect on – Dona”Kar”leoni is my monaker for this event.)
An “Adopt-an-Artist” program is growing – area individuals and businesses are inviting artists to paint their storefronts, homefronts, gardens, street scenes, etc . . . with no “obligation to purchase”. They will provide access to a restroom and a light lunch. (And hopefully, they will attend the Reception & Awards Party on Saturday nite and take home a painting!)
If you would like to come, but need a place to stay . . . I am also organizing a list of folks who would like to “put you up” for the duration of the Paint Out.
Get in touch with me . . . 757-286-6210.
PLEASE COME! Check it out! Paint Outs are a great way to expose your work and name to a more “personal” market and THEY ARE A BLAST!
This is also a great opportunity for Tidewater collectors.
