Let's Celebrate the Visual Arts on Saturday, June 15th 2019 in Historic Dublin, OH.

The Dublin Area Art League is hosting its 16th annual Paint Out event in Historic Dublin. Visitors can enjoy strolling through the streets of Dublin and watch artists painting and drawing outdoors. Everyone is welcome to join us and draw/paint outdoors.

In order to be admitted in the competition and exhibit, the blank surface that the artist will use to create his/her piece must be stamped on the back at time of registration, at the Dublin Area Art League tent. Registrations are accepted from 9am to 12 (noon).

Artists ages 16 and older can register to enter the En Plein Air art competition. Pieces entered in the Plein Air Art competition will be exhibited until June 14th at the Upper Arlington Main Library. Judging will determine the winners. This year the Juror is the renowned artist Michael McEwan. The yearly event is hosted by the Dublin Area Art League, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the Arts in Central Ohio. Membership is open to all who are interested in art. The Paint Out event is funded in part by the Dublin Arts Council.

Competition registration fee is $15; all media, except photography allowed; any style and any subject found in Historic Dublin acceptable. Prizes: Best of Show $200. First, Second, and Third place winners: $100, $75, and $50 cash respectively.
