The second annual Paint Staunton Quick Draw Art Competition will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 in the Sunspots Pavilion, across from Sunspots Studios in downtown Staunton, VA. Area plein air artists will compete for $1000 in cash prizes and the opportunity to capture the timeless beauty of historic downtown Staunton.
Plein air (French for painting outdoors) painters paint from life in the moment and create meaningful art. Upon arrival, event organizers stamp the backs of the blank canvasses. The painting competition begins at 9:30 am and ends at 12:30 pm. The artists turn in the paintings for judging followed by the Wet Paint Sale which is open to the public from 2:00 to 3:00 pm in the Sunspots Pavilion.
