Entries for the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center's Community Paint Out competition can be turned in between noon and 4 p.m. Sunday at the center at 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Entry fee is $5.
Robin Anderson, director of the center, said successfully submitted work will be entered into the Paint Out Exhibition at The Landing mall from Friday, Aug. 22, to Sunday, Sept. 14.
More than $700 in awards will be given.
The program is called painting “en plein air” — literally painting outside — and Port Angeles-based Green Crow timber company is sponsoring the Community Paint Out program.
No experience is necessary for the community painting contest, said Anne Dalton, chairwoman of Paint the Peninsula 2014.
People's choice awards to adults, teens and youths will be presented during a special reception Sunday, Sept. 14, that also will feature demonstrations by professional artists and a mural for community painters, Dalton said.
Registration forms for the Community Paint Out can be downloaded from www.paintthepeninsula.org, where more information can be found.
In September, 32 professional painters will try their hand at expressing the Peninsula's outdoor attractions on canvas.
Their 160 original paintings created Sept. 8-14 will be displayed in the fine arts center gallery, and the work will be judged by artist Jim Lamb on the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 13.
Monetary awards will be given for best of show, as well as first, second and third place and artists' choice.
A public reception will be scheduled.
