Event Details

  • The McMichael is inviting artists to participate in the McMichael En Plein Air Competition taking place on the gallery's grounds on August 25 and 26, in two medium categories:

    • Acrylic/oil on canvas or panel
    • Works on paper

    AWARDS AND EXHIBITION
    Up to three artists from each category will be named First, Second, and Third Prize winners through a jury comprised of the gallery’s curators, educators, and associate community artists.

    A new special category for the Young Artist Awards, including First, Second, and Third Prize, will be introduced at this year’s competition for painters 18-25 in age.

    A special First Choice Award will be given by the jury, and a People’s Choice Award will encourage visitors to participate and to choose their favourite work by casting their ballots in each category.

    Artists/participants will be encouraged to compete for the Kleinburg Village Urban Scene Prize.

    All of the awarded works will be on view in the McMichael’s Creative Learning Gallery.

    Artists are responsible for art supplies used during the competitions, such as materials and easels.

    The dates are August 25 and 26. Both days are from 8:30am-5pm.
