Join Las Vegas Artists’ Guild as we celebrate Spring, through Art, at the Wetlands Park!
When: Sunday, April 18th, 9am – 2pm
During this free event, park visitors will have the opportunity to observe and talk to artists, at work, as they create in the ‘open air’, stationed at different points within the Nature Preserve, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm, on Sunday, April 18th. We invite everyone to stop by the Wetlands Park Nature Center and visit our information table to learn about LVAG and the other paint-out event co-sponsors, and to participate in associated activities. See a map of which artists are offering demonstrations for the day and where in the park to find them. Those who want to vote for the People’s Choice Award, on Sunday, can pick-up & drop-off ballots at the information table.
LVAG Members & Friends who want to participate in this paint-out in the park are invited to sign-up for a specific painting location by Wednesday, April 14th. Your application will be confirmed after we receive it and a participant number will be assigned. You can select your location, at the time of the confirmation by Bill Bon or Patty Dominguez, until all spaces are filled.
We ask those artists who are participating as plein air painters on April 18th, to plan on painting for at least 3 hours, and of course everyone can paint for the entire 5 hrs. of the event. Artists who want to enjoy art in the park with sketch books or cameras as their medium do not need to sign-up for one of the 15-20 paint-out location spots; but are welcome to wander the Nature Preserve throughout the day. Restrooms and water refill areas are open from dawn to dusk. A food truck will be in the parking lot throughout the event. When you arrive to paint in the park, please check-in at the information table by the Nature Center to pick-up a park map with the painting locations marked, and get your 2 – 3 canvases/canvas panels stamped for the event. Only these stamped canvases will be considered for a special exhibition, to be held at the Wetlands Park, in May 2021.
Remember to bring your painting set-ups, sketch books, cameras, outdoor painting supplies (including hat, water bottle, sunscreen, etc.), and an outdoor adventurous attitude to this year’s LVAG’s Plein Air Paint-out in the Park, partnering with the Clark County Wetlands Park, Henderson Recreation Services, and Desert Art Supplies. Note that this event will be filmed and photographed by sponsors.
