Paint Out Norwich 2014 gets a Seventh Location, The Forum

Seventh Location Added – The Forum

Due to the popularity of submissions – nearly 60 entered, and the high standards of entrants, the Paint Out Norwich team elected to raise the number of competing artists to 31.

To supplement that, the Forum on Millennium Plain, Norwich, has come forward as an additional venue to make it 7 locations across our fine city for the competition on 22-23 October. Read more about the Forum location for Paint Out Norwich 2014.

Not only that, but during the 4 painting sessions spread across the 2 days, 1 artist in each session will be allowed to privilege to paint from the roof (in a harness) gaining a bird’s eye view of Norwich Market, Assembly House, St Peter Mancroft, City Hall, across to the Castle and the panoramic environs.

The EDP ran the story on the seven locations in their 25 September edition.

 

 

Final Artists Selection Announced for Paint Out Norwich 2014

Applications Closed

Applications for the inaugural Paint Out Norwich 2014 competition closed at midnight on 1 September.

We had an overwhelmingly positive response from artists near and far. Some 60 applications, about 60% from the broader East Anglia region and others from the rest of the UK and Europe, were received. International interest from farther afield, such as the United States, was also received and as the competition grows in future years we expect further artists to apply and expand the reach of the vision.

Partake or Spectate?

If you didn’t apply, don’t make the final cut, or are just interested in art and live painting en plein air, then why not come along and watch the competitors as they paint on Wednesday October 22 and Thursday, October 23 at the iconic and historic sites around Norwich including Pull’s Ferry, the Norwich Market, The Cathedrals, Elm Hill and the Norwich Castle.

Selection Panel & Process

Between September 1 and 21 the submitted artists were scrutinised by our panel of experts including Will Buckley, Rachel Campbell-Johnston, James Colman, Rev Dr Peter Doll, Mike King, and Stephanie Sinclair, in order to select not only the best, but a varied range of styles to make for an interesting and exciting competition that will appeal to both artists and appreciators of art.

Competing Artists Announced

Paint Out Norwich would like to announce that the following 31 artists have been selected to participate in the inaugural 2014 event:

John Behm, Timothy Betjeman, Bryony Birkbeck, Richard Bond, Patrick Boswell, Leon Bunnewell, Roy Connelly, Chris Daynes, Anthea Eames, Katie Falcon, Cornelia Fitzroy, Gerald Green, Mark Greenwood, Jane Hall, Wil Harvey, Francesca Heathorn, Tyga Helme, Mary Kallagher, Dan Llywelyn Hall, Chloe Mandy, Stephen Martyn, Elizabeth Monahan, Simon Page, David Pilgrim, Janet Poole, Michael P Richardson, Graham Rider, Haidee-Jo Summers, Mo Teeuw, Liam Wales, and Philip Wilkinson.

Congratulations to all of them for getting selected. Commiserations, also, to all those who did not make it this time –  please try again next year. The quality and range of submitted previous art work was wonderful and led to difficult decisions for the selectors.

It’s all about getting people excited about visual arts and the festival because there are lots of great things going on. For the first year we thought it would be a popular move to create paintings inspired by the great landmarks of Norwich and see what people come up with, there will be different interpretations and we are interested in new and novel ways of looking at our great landmarks.”
