Grand Prix d’Art – 2020
Jul 3 at 9:00am - Aug 28 at 3:00pmFree
The Old School House Arts Centre is hosting the 27th annual Grand Prix d’Art painting race in a modified version this year due to Covid-19. Grand Prix d’Art will happen every from Friday July 3rd through August 28th.
The Grand Prix d’Art is a three-hour painting “race” that requires artists to complete a work of art “en plein air” (working outside, not in a studio). Each artist is assigned a location in the Town of Qualicum Beach by lottery. The artwork must represent or be inspired by something that is visible from the assigned location. Artists of all levels, experience and mediums are welcome. Modified for COVID19, Artists can paint anytime between 9am and 3pm. Artwork is brought back to TOSH to be hung. Afterwards, artwork is exhibited in the gallery for display and sale until September 28th. We will be displaying these both online, and in person.
Visitors are encouraged to watch the process and the progress of the artists at the various locations, in a socially distant manner, which are all within walking distance of The Old School House Arts Centre in downtown Qualicum Beach.
