BRAGG CREEK PLEIN AIR ART FESTIVAL 2016

 

 

It all started on the Friday night, Sept. 30th. The kick off party was to enjoy and spend time with fellow artists before we start the
weekend of painting. Saturday and Sunday will be an all day paint out at 3-4 locations around Bragg Creek. Coffee and snacks
will be available all day Saturday and Sunday for participating artists at the gallery.

West Coast Canvas is providing a 12" x 16" canvas Plein Air panel free to all artists !
Forte Create is Providing free a choice of 12" x 16" or 9" x 12" High End Painters Panel free to all artists as well !

Bragg Creek Plein Air Festival

 

Kensington Art Supply and Instruction provides all the supplies needed fopr Plein Air Painting! Thanks so much !




An opportunity to be exhibited at the Redwood show the following weekend when, on Sunday, the top 3 plein air paintings will be
revealed at noon. Awards will be given out through a jury process at this time.
The painting requirements to exhibit in that show are as follows: painting need to be
9 x 12, or 12 x 16, vertical or horizontal. Art country Canada will be supplying a consistent presentation frame
for both sizes.The prices for the
frames will be reasonably priced and high quality. (This is optional for artists, they can paint in any size,
it is just those who chose to enter a painting in the juried show need to follow these requirements. We don't want to put pressure on anyone,
just come out and have a good time, bring warm clothes, and be prepared. There will be a suggestion list to follow for those who need one.)

This will help make the exhibit consistent. One submission per artist for exhibit.

After Sunday artwork will be shown in the Art Country Gallery for one week.
We want this festival to be an annual event that inspires artists to meet together and enjoy the arts,
the charity will support promising young
local Artists to continue in their desire to make the arts a career choice. This is an opportunity to give back and create
something special for the Calgary area.

This is a list of items recommended for Plein Air painting;

- Easel or some other surface to steady the painting on
- paints
- brushes
- panels -
- a stool or folding chair if they don't want to stand to paint
- the materials they use to clean their brushes
- usually they need a panel carrier for wet paintings but both our locations (Elbow Falls and Forgetmenot Pond are close to parking so they can likely just run wet paintings back to the vehicles - there are also washroom facilities at both spots)
- warm clothing if cold, sunscreen and bug spray if warm - warm clothing includes gloves, boots (they should wear sturdy boots in either weather - secure footing is essential), hat, some folks bring hand warmers - it's also a good idea to bring a thermos with warm drink - excellent at keeping you warm on a cold day.
- plenty of water and snacks to keep up the energy
- some people like to bring an umbrella to cover themselves with if raining or if the sun is too strong,
they will use it to shade the painting
