About the Event
How the event works:
Registered and Participating artists will be assigned a painting location by lottery, where they will have 3 hours to complete their work of art before submitting them for display and adjudication. Artists are then treated to a wonderful lunch, entertainment, and awards ceremony. Cash prizes for the finalists, including several youth and participation awards, will be given out, with the general public having the opportunity to vote for the “People’s Choice Award”.
As official sponsor and coordinator for the Grand Prix of Art, Phoenix Art Workshop’s Travellingbrush.com is thrilled to be once again organizing this exciting competition in our own neighborhood for September 19th, with our host partners the Richmond Artist Guild. The Ladner race will kick things off July 19th, hosted by Artists in the Village and the Corporation of Delta, while The Old School House in Qualicum will hold their event on July 25th.
Join us in one or all of the events and collect points toward the Grand Prix Championship. If you are from the lower mainland and would like to visit the Qualicum event, or are an Islander looking to come and visit us in Vancouver, Richmond or Delta let us know and we can have one of our volunteers pick you up at the ferry terminal and take you straight to the event, returning you back to the ferry for walk on departure.
