2021 PaintOut entries

18th Annual Dublin Paint Out Competition

DUBLIN, OH – On Saturday, September 18th, 2021 the Dublin Area Art League hosted the 18th Annual Paint Out event in Historic Dublin.

33 artists registered to enter the En Plein Air art contest, embracing the challenge to produce a painting in a few hours. Several other artists just came out and painted, without entering the competition.

Artists arrived between 9:00 AM and noon, and they had until 3:00 PM to find a spot/subject and complete a piece of art depicting Dublin.

People from the community enjoyed observing artists at work. On the wonderfully sunny and warm day, everyone had a great time and the artwork produced is truly remarkable.
Several paintings sold during the wet sale, or even before, while still on the easel. Congrats!!

This year’s judge was renowned artist Karen LaValley.

LaValley determined Best of Show, Merit Award, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Prize winners.

Congrats to all!! The quality of the entries is outstanding, and what a lovely variety in medium and subject matter!
