The Public Arts League of Salado, Texas, is launching its first ever Paint Out competition and is inviting artists and the public to be a part of this inaugural event. Details here!

The Public Arts League of Salado has sent out a call for artists to apply to compete in its inaugural Paint Out, September 22-23. The Salado Taste of Art invites painters in all media and includes a Quick Draw competition that gives artists 100 minutes to complete their work.

Via the event press release: “Salado offers artists a wide variety of venues for painting. Main Street, Salado Creek, College Hill, the Sculpture Garden, local B&B’s, and the open ranch land are all waiting to be subjects.

“The two days of active painting will allow everyone to observe art in progress. In addition, Friday’s schedule of activities includes a plein air demonstration and an Artists Meet and Greet. Saturday’s schedule includes an informative talk on the art of plein air and the Awards Reception.

“Invited artists will have completed art available for purchase throughout the Taste of Art event. The purchases from this collection support the individual artists and the Public Arts League of Salado.

“The competition paintings will be displayed for purchase at the Saturday evening Canvas, Castings, and Cocktails Reception. The artists’ work that most impresses the exhibition judges will be given cash awards. These prize-winning paintings will be auctioned. New sculptures in the Salado Sculpture Garden will also be judged for cash awards.”
