Grand Prix d’Art Painting Race


Our Grand Prix d’Art is a “race”; competing artists must complete a work of art “en plein air” (working outside on location, not in a studio) within three hours.
Each painter will be assigned a location in the picturesque town of Qualicum Beach by lottery. The work must represent or be inspired by some thing or person that is visible from the assigned location.
Painters of all levels of experience and mediums begin painting at 11:00 a.m. At 2:00 p.m. the paintings are brought back to TOSH for framing and judging.
At this point they go on sale to the public and will be hung for display in the TOSH gallery until August 7. Prizes will be given out to the winners at 3:00 p.m

The entry fee of $25.00 includes a wonderful sit-down lunch with all the artists after the event!
