The Uptown Art Gallery at the Brooksville City Hall is pleased to announce the First Annual Plein Air Paint-Out. This will be an "on location" painting event sponsored by the Brooksville Main Street Program and the City of Brooksville. The final presentation and judging will be at Brooksville Main Street's Un-Common-ly Artsy Market.

On Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM, we will formally sign in the artists and stamp all paper, canvas, etc. Bring all that you will use. This is done to ensure that we know the work is completed within the 7 days of the event. Area maps will be provided so you can become familiar with the city and the county. All participants must be responsible for their own well-being and that of their artwork. The Brooksville Main Street Program and the City of Brooksville will not be responsible for any injury or loss.

Painting must be done during any or all of Saturday April 21st through Friday April 27th, and all artwork must be done in Hernando County. Paintings must be done without the aid of photography. Artists' work must be turned in to City Hall on Friday, April 27th from 1:00PM to 4:00PM. We will ask that you frame 2 paintings for judging. Please be prepared with all of your framing needs. Bring the finished pieces to the Brooksville City Hall, 201 Howell Avenue no later than 4:00P.M.

The awards will be presented at the Un-Commonly-Artsy Market on Saturday April 28, 2018. There will be monetary awards of $300.00 for First Place, $200.00 for Second Place, $100.00 for Third Place and three awards of $50.00 for Honorable Mention.

All work submitted will be on display at the Un-Commonly-Artsy Market and the Uptown Gallery, where the artwork will be offered For Sale.
