TRAC's 6th Annual Paint Out

19 May 2012

The sixth Annual Paint Out takes place in Burnsville on Saturday, May 19. This one-day plein air competition starts at 8 am at the Burnsville TRAC Gallery, located at 102 West Main Street in downtown Burnsville. Painters of all sorts are invited to participate by signing up between the hours of 8 am and 10 am. Locations to paint can be pre-determined and preliminary sketches can be down. But, on the day of the Paint Out painters must first submit their canvases, paper, etc to be authenticated that they are blank. By 5 pm painters must return to the gallery with their work to be juried for up to $1000 in cash awards. This year's judge is Stuart Roper, Asheville painter. Awards are announced Saturday evening during the reception that takes place from 6:30 to 7:30. For more information visit the Toe River Arts Council website at or call 828-682-7215.
