A great event for spectators! 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 Summit Art.
This Paint Out happens during Missouri Town 1855’s annual Fall Festival of Arts, Crafts and Music. Attendance is expected to be about 8,000 people! Historic interpreters, artisans, musicians, dancers and crafters will bring to life the celebration that took place as the crops came in. Hitch a ride on a wagon, see sorghum being made, play a 19th century game and make memories to last a lifetime. As you can see, there will be MANY amazing features to paint!
NEW to this Paint Out: We will be selling $5.00 raffle tickets for the Purchase Award. The winning ticket will be drawn at 3:00 pm. The winner of the raffle ticket drawing will select the painting for the Purchase Award, and they get to take it home! The selected artist will receive $250 from Summit Art. Any proceeds beyond $250 will benefit Summit Art. Following the competition, the public can explore the finished paintings at the Art Show & Sale to browse and buy fresh, new paintings by area artists.
