Caerphilly Plein Air Competition Saturday 13th October

Coming up in October is an event designed to bring together artists (aged 16+) who love painting outdoors. Guaranteeing good weather on the day is beyond the organisers control but whatever the elements throw at us they hope participants will turn up in droves for a fun day out.

How to participate:

  • Register your interest beforehand by emailing your details to: ygalericaerffili@gmail.com

  • Turn up at Y Galeri Caerffili (on the ground Floor of the Visit Caerphilly Centre) at 9.30am

    on the day to pay your entrance fee & get your blank canvas, paper or board stamped

    before you start.

  • Find yourself an interesting viewpoint somewhere in Caerphilly and create an artwork

    inspired by your chosen vista

  • Return your finished masterpiece to the gallery at 4pm.

    Entrance fee is £5.00 per artwork payable on the day.

    The winning artwork will be selected by plein air artist Louise Collis who will be looking for a piece she feels best captures the essence of Caerphilly. The winner stands to win a £100 gift voucher to spend in Y Galeri Caerffili. All finished artworks will feature in their on-line gallery and will be available for sale.
