Come see – and celebrate – the transformation of neglected green space in Butchertown into the thriving Waterfront Botanical Gardens. Grab a bite from local food trucks and enjoy live music. The Paint Out event this year will be held on the backside of the Waterfront Botanical Gardens along the Beargrass Creek Greenway.
Registration deadline: August 27, 2018
Artist participation fee: $30 LVA members, $40 no-members
Your Paint Out participation fee covers one 12" x 12" canvas or watercolor paper, entry into the contest and entrance to the ReGeneration Fair at the Waterfront Botanical Gardens.
Location: Beargrass Creek Greenway (due to construction on the Waterfront Botanical Gardens).
Parking will be available at Eva Bandman Park (handicap parking will be accommodated).
A 12" x 12" canvas or watercolor paper will be provided - artists are asked to bring their media of choice to paint with. Artists are responsible for their own easel (if desired). Canvases and paper will be handed out during check-in the morning of the event. Check-in will be at Eva Bandman Park.
There will be a 70/30 split of artwork sold, with the artist receiving 70% of the sale. The 30% of the sale benefits LVA's Children's Fine Art Classes.
