ELIGIBILITY & REQUIREMENTS

The 13th Annual Paint Historic Waxahachie is open to any artist 18 and over.  Work submitted should reflect the best quality of your plein air painting.  In the spirit of plein air and to Level the field” of competition, we ask that all art be completed in the field (no studio touch-up).  Artists must agree to paint a minimum 2 days (or sessions) on location during the official 7 day paint week, May 4th through 13th.  Canvas, board or paper must be authenticated (stamped) prior to painting.  Artists are required to submit a minimum of 2 paintings for the exhibition and sale.

LOCATION:  

Painting locations include (but not limited to) historic homes, the Waxahachie Courthouse Square and surrounding Historic District, our city park, and a 5-mile hiking/biking trail that runs through town, plus special access to private properties.

OTHER INFORMATION

The paint out area throughout historic Waxahachie is selected to give artists plenty of exposure and opportunity for sales.  Our event publication, “Collector’s Guide to a Paint Out” is designed to promote and market the artists, their art and the event.  Paint Historic Waxahachie 2018 is sponsored by the Ellis County Art Association, a 501(c)3 non profit corporation. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of art will benefit Ellis County Art Association community fine art programs.
