Paint Out Norwich 2018 saw over 275 works of art created by 35 artists, each in 2-4 hours, around 7 iconic locations, and across 4 days of extreme weather, first an Indian summer then freezing downpours for two days, then a return to sun and dry. The 14 prizewinners were sponsored by Leathes Prior Solicitors as well as a local interest prize from Norwich Art Supplies.

Wednesday night saw the Private View and Awards event decked out with Paint Out‘s distinctive contemporary, white-walled shelving, that allows the some-still-wet artworks to be displayed fresh, raw and unframed. Well over a dozen paintings were sold in a short buying spree before the award announcements.

The judges on the night, from the fields of art practice, art history, and fine art sales, were Dr Giorgia Bottinelli, curator of historic art at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery, Sarah Flynn from Cheffins Art Auctioneers, and artist Tony Robinson of Art in the Open, Ireland.

The judging is a critical part of the jury-entry art event bringing a professional critique, educative commentary, and diverse determinations on the paintings by art world specialists. The independent judges had to agree on the overall winner and individual media category winners. They were also, however, able to nominate a commendation in their own right for a Judge’s Award prize:

  • Sarah Flynn, judge’s choice – Rob Pointon from Crewe for “Diagonal Light on the Seafood Stalls”, at Norwich Market

Sarah Flynn said of the process:

“I thoroughly enjoyed seeing such an interesting and diverse collection of mixed media artworks. I loved the Nocturnes – quite a hard thing to do. It made judging a delightful experience and good to do it with Georgia and Tony. What really came across was the fun all the artists had had and the camaraderie which had built up between them.”

Tony Robinson, an experienced artist himself, said:

“Thanks for the invitation to a marvellous event initiated by you and laid on with a selfless team. It will remain long in the memory and I urge any artist to put Paint Out Norwich in their timetable in their anorak and don’t miss it next year. It is a great platform for plein air painting…I was greatly impressed by the dedication, quality and inventiveness shown by the artists who took part. The organisers had set an artistic assault-course for them to try to portray and interpret the city of Norwich from her bustling market scenes to the academic quarter, and from the medieval streets around Tombland to 1960s slide-rule architecture in concrete, glass and steel. The result was a fascinating exhibition depicting the many facets of the city and several outstanding works of art. I commend the artists and organisers of Paint Out Norwich on a marvellous festival and the foremost plein air painting event in the UK.”

  • Giorgia Bottinelli, judge’s choice – Frances Martin, of Norwich, for “Peregrine Falcon Circling Wellington – with His Beak”, at Upper Close, Norwich Cathedral

Overall Winner, Rob Pointon

First Prize, being a combined category and first prize cheque for £500 donated by Leathes Prior, went to Cheshire artist Rob Pointon for his oil painting of Westlegate, “Changing Skyline”. Whilst being a seasoned artist, this was Rob’s first Paint Out. The 36-year-old painter said this of the event:

“PaintOut has been a thoroughly life enriching experience for me, it’s the first time I have entered the competition and despite having competed in other one day painting events was surprised at the intensity of the 5 day competition with back to back days of nearly 12 hours of competitive painting. I don’t normally work alla prima so to push through so many works in a short space of time was a tough but a healthy challenge. Having the competition over a number of days meant I had time to settle in to the beautiful city of Norwich and get past the obvious subjects, but more importantly was to gradually settle into a community of like-minded passionate artists, all giving their all for their craft, but at the same time helping and supporting one another. I have made a number of good friends and look forward to seeing them again at future events. Crammed in-between the intense periods of painting were high-level artist demonstrations and a number of superb lectures by excellent knowledgeable speakers. Before you have chance to catch a breath the work is displayed in the spectacular setting of Norwich Cathedral with wet paint warning signs and a busy Private View. To walk off with a number of prizes including Overall Winner was the icing on the cake! I look forward to future PaintOut events”

Further prizes, sponsored by Leathes Prior, were awarded in each of 4 categories:

Oils

First Prize: Rob Pointon, “Changing Skyline”.

Second Prize: Roger Dellar, “Light Coming Through the Market”. Roger last painted at Paint Out in 2016 when he also won a prize.

Third Prize: Sarah Allbrook. 31-year-old Paint Out first-timer Sarah is based in Cambridge but trained at NUA in Norwich.

Watercolour & Acrylic

First Prize: Shaun Carey, “Norwich Market 1”, painted on the first morning of the 2018 event in his stand-out trademark dark blue acrylic style.

Second Prize: Wendy Kimberley,”Wonky Bridges of Norfolk County”. Fresh from winning En Plein Air Windsor & Eton, Wendy picked up a deserved second place with a dark-styled acrylic daytime painting of St George’s Bridge by NUA.
Mixed & Other Media

First Prize: Alfie Carpenter, “He Shall Not Be Moved”. Marking a successful return to the competition despite a little opposition, on health and safety ground, to so many artists painting Anglia Square – hence the painting title! On the Awards night, he sold four paintings within minutes!

Second Prize: Tom Cringle, “The Memorial”, on St Peter’s Street at the top of the Market. Tom is now a regular Paint Out winner and continues to push his work in new directions at the event.

Nocturnes

2018 saw the return for the fourth-time of the popular and innovative nocturne – evening/nighttime painting category that sets Paint Out apart from other competitions.

First Prize: Susan Isaac, “Up The Steps”, painted from the rear of St Peter Mancroft with its eerie gothic feel late at night lit by a single street lamp.

Second Prize: Paul Alcock, “Thorns by Night”, on Pottergate, a now classic local nocturne view with the warm orange glow of its nighttime lighting.

The Unilever Prize

Marking the winding down of Colman’s production operations at the historic site and brand with a heritage stretching back over 200 years, Paint Out was granted access to the early 16th-century Grade I listed Benedictine Priory, Carrow Abbey and its 12th-century ruins on site. Carrow Abbey has been the subject of a number of notable paintings including “the Carrow Abbey hunt”, by the artist Philip Reinagle in 1780.

We are grateful to Unilever for two engraved silver Colman’s mustard pots that were presented to the winners.

First Prize: Alex Atkinson, “Rising from the Ruins”. In 2017, Alex won the Spirit of Norwich Prize at Paint Out.

Second Prize: Kate Gabriel, “Autumn at Carrow Abbey”

The Spirit of Plein Air award once again went to Taverham-based American artist John Behm for his braving a plunge into the River Wensum by scaling Fye Bridge, in order to rescue another artist’s work and easel!

A further prize, the Spirit of Norwich, sponsored by Norwich Art Supplies was awarded to Hannah Bruce for her diverse collection of artworks of Norwich in various media and styles.

The People’s Choice Exhibition vote went to Sarah Allbrook, who also won the Third Prize in Oils and sold very well at the Exhibition.

The paintings remain on view at the Norwich Cathedral Hostry as part of the Hostry Festival and Paint Out exhibition until 28 October. Last year some 8,000 people saw the 150+ paintings of 2017, with dozens of artworks selling.

Paint Out Norwich 2017 saw over 200 works of art created by 37 artists, each in under 3 hours, across 3 days of Indian summer weather around the city. Wednesday night saw the Private View and Awards event packed out with a buzz around the unconventional yet contemporary, white-walled shelving, curated display of mostly unframed artworks.

The ‘raw’, fresh off the easel, look embraces the fact that many of the paintings are literally still ‘wet’ and are sold to art lovers, in a giant white pizza-style box, as if freshly baked. Unlike other competitive reality shows and events, Paint Out is uncontrived, unpredictable, spontaneous public theatre, where you can truly ‘experience art, live!’

“2017 has been our most exciting year yet, not only in terms of the quality produced, but its diversity, and I have been blown away by the enthusiasm of the artists taking part. The event is as much about the art as the artists connecting with each other and the local community – they get three days of intensive art experience in a competitive environment, leaving as better artists, and with friends for life, and Norwich gains a living record of three days in October.” – James Colman

The judges on the night, all of whom have links to Norwich or Norfolk, were Marcus Dickey-Horley (Curator of Access and Public Programmes who has worked at a number of major London galleries), Hugh Pilkington (Cley16 curator), and artist John Wonnacott, who also delivered a fascinating art talk “Confronting Appearances” during the week long celebration of art and plein air competition.

The judging is a critical part of the event bringing an edgy critique, educative commentary, and varied views of the paintings by art world specialists. The independent judges had to agree on the overall winner and individual media category winners. They were also able to nominate a commendation in their own right for a Judge’s Award prize from Cass Art:

  • Marcus Dickey Horley, judge’s choice – Paul Alcock from Southend-On-Sea, “Looking Back”, at Mousehold Heath
  • Hugh Pilkington, judge’s choice – Richard Bond of Norwich, “Indian Summer”, also at Mousehold Heath
  • John Wonnacott, judge’s choice – Susan Field, also of Norwich, “Communication”, at Norwich Market

Overall Winner, Eloise O’Hare

First Prize of £500, donated by Leathes Prior, went to Norwich resident Eloise O’Hare for her watercolour and ink large painting of Norwich Station’s railway tracks, “Keeping Track of Time”. Eloise previously won Third Prize in 2015. Last Saturday, she also painted the spectators walking past and arriving at the VIP Directors entrance of the Norwich City v Hull City football match, at which some fans were wearing vintage Colman’s shirts. Ed Balls and Delia Smith, among others, feature in the painting and Delia came over to see herself in the large format painting. It was also on show in the Cathedral Hostry 19-28 October, alongside the competition paintings.

Media Category Winners

Further prizes, sponsored by Strutt & Parker, were awarded in each of 5 categories:

OilsEmily Faludy of Peckham, London, “Morning Illumination” on Riverside. Emily only went full-time as an artist 4 months ago and was “shocked but said that “life should be one long painting trip”.

Mixed & Other Media (Acrylic, Pastel etc)Ginny Bain, of Norwich, “Safety Railings onto the Wensum”, from Riverside

Further art material prizes were sponsored by Cass Art and Norwich Art Supplies including the judge’s commendations, above. 

The Spirit of Plein Air award once again went to Norfolk-based American artist John Behm for his watery endeavour, positioning himself in kilt and bare feet in the River Wensum to get the best angle of view to paint Bishop’s Bridge.

A further prize, the Spirit of Norwich, was awarded to Alex Atkinson for his “Under the Elm” on Elm Hill. The artist, who lives in Norwich, clearly knows his city well.

Paul Gadenne, who travelled up from Kent, as in past years, just to join in the public paint out, won the public entry prize for the Ketts Heights and Mousehold Heath event on Sunday, for his painting “Norwich Cathedral”.

Paint Out is an art event aiming to redefine 21st century en plein air art practice, evolving the genre to reflect our contemporary world. We are ambitious in our aim to deliver the most innovative plein air art event in the UK, where artists, collectors and public observers are all treated to a dynamic live art experience.” – James Colman

The paintings remained on view at the Norwich Cathedral Hostry as part of the Hostry Festival and Paint Out exhibition until 28 October. Over 8,000 people saw the 150+ paintings, with some 30 artworks selling. Exhibition visitors chose the pastel work of art “Red Beret” by artist John Patchett as their Public Vote Choice

Paint Out took to a double-decker bus for fresh plein air views of Norwich

Paint Out‘s first public en plein air art event of 2017 saw a dozen or so artists find fresh views and a new perspective of Norwich seen across the Market to the Castle, the Guildhall, and St Peter Mancroft, on a sunny bank holiday weekend Sunday.

The vision of James Colman to keep landscape artists challenged by looking at the urban environment in new ways has seen a hundred artists gather on Mousehold Heath in 2015 for panoramic views of Norwich, and in 2016 saw artists amass in Tombland and take to canoes on the River Wensum. 

Last weekend was the turn of an open-top double-decker bus, supplied by Dolphin Travel with amiable driver, Andrew – who also supplied the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack that kept the artists painting in the hot sun during the afternoon session.

 

Artists featured

As well as members of the public including an artist’s teenage son joining in, there were Paint Out regulars including the artists: John Behm, Mary Brady, Karen Adams, Jack Godfrey, Mary Kallagher, and James Colman himself.

Some artists like Jan Halliwell travelled down from Lincolnshire to join the Norfolk paint out on the streets of the city, alongside the bus.

Paint Out welcomes experienced artists to its juried-entry art competitions but also runs public entry paint-outs for artist of all ages and abilities to encourage people into discovering and furthering their artistic creativity. 

Art skills workshops were run the day before to tutor budding and honed talents alike.

The Paint Out Bus will return

“The Paint Out bus this weekend provided us with a fantastic hub from which to tell the world about our forthcoming 2017-18 programme plans. Our artists found their elevated experience inspirational.

For contestants at Paint Out Norwich and Wells, it provides a great add-on for our Nocturne and main events and provides a forum with which to engage with the public. Chameleon-like, expect the bus to take on many guises in its quest to take plein air painting across the UK.” – James Colman

Future Paint Out events

Paint Out will be popping up again as guests of the two-day Royal Norfolk Show, June 28-29, and then at our full plein air painting competition events at Wells-next-the-Sea, 15-17 September, and at Norwich, 15-17 October.

The Paint Out Wells judges awarded Alfie Carpenter the £750 first prize donated by sponsor Hopkins Homes for his large 20″x30″ mixed media dawn collage “Hoping For Sun” created on Wells-next-the-Sea quayside.

“I’ve been overwhelmed and humbled by the response and the accolades for my work. I’m really thankful to Paint Out for the opportunity to create new work in such an exciting way and it was an honour to be working alongside such wonderful artists.
I still can’t quite believe it!” – Alfie Carpenter

Alfie’s paintings sold out at the Buttlands Exhibition before the Sunday gallery show was half over. The prizes were not announced till 5.30pm but unwittingly the prize-winning painting had already been bought by local Wells Maltings trustee, Nick Skinner and Martin Whiteside. Nick had this to say about his fortunate purchase:

“We enjoyed the Paint Out Wells weekend and as local homeowners it was great to see the artists developing their paintings over time and capturing the town in such different ways. We watched Alfie at work and his painting captured a different view of Wells and one we really liked. We are delighted that others thought so too and would like to congratulate Alfie. Well done to all those involved for a great weekend and we look forward to next year!” – Nick Skinner

Second Prize – Tanya Pawsey

Tanya Pawsey was torn between painting two works side-by-side in the three-hour session and of the two ended up submitting a closely cropped study in oils of bobbing boats dancing in the water and early Sunday morning light on the harboured-sea. She wins the second prize of £500 donated by sponsor Archant for her 10×12″ work entitled “Dancing Boats, Wells”. Tanya described herself as being “over the moon” to have won a prize:

“I’m over the moon that I’ve won a prize as I was already buzzing with pride at having the courage to take part. I’ve won new friends, encouragement, inspiration and funds to invest into new equipment! [L]ooking forward to Paint Out Norwich next month.” – Tanya’s blog

“Winning an award was the last thing I expected so I’m absolutely thrilled! I’m extremely thankful to everyone involved in Paint Out for making it a most inspiring and encouraging event.” – Tanya Pawsey

Brian Korteling was awarded the third prize of £250 donated by sponsor Sowerbys for his work entitled “The Albatros” created during a high tide that was flooding across the quayside car park next to where The Albatros ship is moored.

“I was delighted and surprised to win 3rd prize. There was some really high quality and interesting work produced over the weekend and it was a pleasure to take part. Will definitely be back in Wells next year for Paint Out.” – Brian Korteling

Brian has also been selected to take part in Paint Out Norwich in October 2016.

Judge’s commendations

Apart from having to agree on the top three prize awards the two judges: artist Nicholas Barnham and Amanda Geitner, Director of the East Anglia Arts Fund, were also given the freedom to award a personal commendation outside the top rankings with a £100 prize going to each of the following highly commended artists: Alfie Carpenter, and Jack Godfrey. The consistency of the judging is demonstrated in the fact that three different judges awarded these same two artists second and third prizes, respectively, at Paint Out Wells 2015.

Spirit of Plein Air & Other Art Awards

Two further prizes recognising artist’s merits and mettle include an award of £100 to John Behm, as a Team recognition for someone who embodied the “Spirit of Plein Air”, for painting in the cold biting winds and rainy downpours in shorts, in the mud, and in flipflops at dawn on a high tide-flooded quayside. Out of the three Paint Out events in which this award has been given, John has won it twice, he goes the extra mile for his art.

In addition, a Community recognition award of £100, also for a second time, went to Will Topley for his capturing of the essence of Wells-next-the-Sea.

Long-time supporter of Paint Out, Michael Richardson, delivered an art workshop and during it also created a painting of one of its participants, who was a popular entrant in Paint Out Norwich 2014. Mary Kallagher was delighted to receive the painting itself as a gift and recognition of her spirit in keeping painting irrespective of hand and eye health issues.

A young 4-year-old art critic also awarded Sue Mann a bag of jelly babies for her favourite painting of a “pink boat”.  Sue Mann received an artist’s commendation at Paint Out Wells 2015, so the young judge has good taste!
