Paint Webster is a plein air outdoor painting competition held on the second Saturday in May. Open to both amateurs and professionals, the competition encourages artists of all ages to capture on canvas the outdoor spaces of the charming Webster Groves community. At the end of the day, artists can submit their works to compete for more than $2,000 in awards. A reception is held for the community to meet the artists and view the paintings. Artists can have their works hung at the Webster Arts Center gallery in Webster Groves, through June 30.
Pre-registration is encouraged. $10 for adults, free for children 18 and younger. Click HERE to pay $10 registration form (adults only.) Questions: Read Paint Webster FAQ HERE
Juror for Paint Webster 2018 is Marty Coutler, an award-winning plein air artist.
New this year is the gallery location. In prior years, the work was delivered to the Monday Club for a short reception and awards ceremony. The work was then moved to the Old Orchard Gallery for exhibition. Webster Arts is grateful for the generosity of both groups in hosting Paint Webster for 11 years.
This year, all work will be delivered to the Webster Arts Center, Schultz Hall, Eden Seminary, and the work can hang in the gallery until June 30. Three major events will be hosted in the gallery during this time, allowing more people to see the work.
Webster Arts encourages sales of original work. Beginning in 2018, all sales of work will be handled by Webster Arts. A portion of the sales (30%) will support Paint Webster and Webster Arts.
