Art in the great outdoors: Snoqualmie Plein Air Paint Out returns Saturday
August 16, 2012 · 9:46 AM
The Snoqualmie Plein Air Paint Out is Saturday, August 18 at Snoqualmie Railroad Days.
Artists of all skill levels and mediums are invited to paint “en plein air”—in the open air—in Historic Downtown Snoqualmie and throughout the city.
The Snoqualmie Arts Commission will select a winning work at 3 p.m. at an artist reception and public artwork showing at The Black Dog, 8062 Railroad Ave. S.E. A no-host bar for wine and beer will be available.
The winning work for 2012 will be featured on the 2013 Snoqualmie Plein Air Paint Out poster. Posters of past years’ winning works will be available for purchase.
Artists may download registration forms on the Snoqualmie Arts Commission Plein Air Paint Out web page, under the City Government/Art Commission tab. Event registration is $20. No business license is needed and commissions will not be taken from paintings sold. The requirement is that painters be actively working on-site and not solely selling art pieces. Painting sales are allowed in booths.
On the morning of the event, please come by the Railroad Park Gazebo at 7971 Railroad Ave SE (across from the Snoqualmie Depot) to check in prior to beginning to paint. Competing artwork must be started and completed on the day of the event.
