A great event for artists and spectators! This live painting competition happens Saturday, July 30, 2022, from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. A Paint Out is a “Quick Paint” competition – an exciting competition for plein air painters working on location. Artists will compete for a $250 Purchase Award sponsored by Blue Springs Marine. Following the competition, the public can explore the finished paintings at the Quick Sale to browse and buy fresh, new paintings by area artists.
Lake Jacomo is located near Blue Springs and Lee’s Summit in eastern Jackson County, Missouri. This breathtaking 970-acre freshwater reservoir sits in the heart of Fleming Park, Jackson County Parks + Rec’s premiere recreational area featuring beaches, boating, campgrounds, historic sites and trails. The Paint Out occurs during the Jackson County Sailing Club’s Grand Open Regatta, a spectacular sailboat race. Artists will enjoy painting all the colorful sailboats and gorgeous landscapes.
Artists should check in and get their canvas stamped at the Administration Parking Lot of the Jackson County Parks + Rec Building starting at 7:30 am. You may paint from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm, making sure you turn in your finished paintings no later than 4:00 pm. All finished paintings with stamps turned in by registered artists will be eligible for the Purchase Award. All canvas must be stamped by Summit Art at the Admin Building before painting begins.
