You will be given a sign to place on your painting site, which will also contain your entry number. Work will be produced on-site, and we encourage you to feature some aspect of our community. Also, many porches of Lamar Arts members will be available to you should you wish to paint Victorian homes on historic Thomaston Street.

Tables will be available at the Depot, where you may frame your work. We encourage each artist to have on hand an easel on which to exhibit finished works. Please be back at the Depot by 2:00 pm.

Work will be judged at 3:30 pm at the Antebellum Oaks Inn, followed by the awards presentation, after which the public is invited to view the artworks and meet the artists. A silent auction will be held from 4:00 to 5:15 PM to sell the art work. Bid winners will be announced shortly after 5:15 PM.

Artists are requested to set a minimum bid price for their work. All sales will go through Lamar Arts with a 20% commission going to Lamar Arts. Artist will be paid within 1 week of the sale. The artist will retain copyright to the work and can offer prints at the Depot Gift Shop.

Each artist participating in this event will receive a ticket to our Derby Party.
