“Artists with their easels, paints and sunhats will descend on North Norfolk’s bustling coastal port of Wells-next-the Sea for a four-day juried art competition and exhibition. We believe Wells to provide the ideal backdrop for a coastal outdoor art competition with its variety of subject matter – beach, harbour, salt marsh, and its close proximity in both directions to North Norfolk’s other coastal villages and landmarks.” – James Colman, Paint Out founder
After the resounding success of Paint Out Norwich in 2014 and 2015, the first Paint Out Wells is here! The en plein air fine art event highlights will draw people to the seaside spot and gets artists painting on location in September.
The event includes agala auction at the Crown Hotel on Friday September 11th and a public exhibition of completed works running 12th-13th afterwards on the Buttlands.
The event also features an Artists Question Time at 6.30pm on September 10th, and public sunrise 'paint out' event on September 11th. The beach is renowned for its wide expanse, substantial sand dunes, picturesque painted beach huts, and both landward and seaward vistas.
A prize fund of £2,500-£3,000, iconic views, and the late summer sun will draw many artists to this wonderful seaside town this September.
