Little Hereford Painting Challenge!

This looks fun! Jean Simnett is organising a Painting Challenge at the Little Hereford Fete this year. Here are the details:

Three designated sites are available for painting as shown on the attached plan.  It is necessary to restrict painting to these areas to avoid congestion and possible health and safety risks.  The designated areas are “Poolside”, “Garden” and “Parkland”.

 Painting is from 11.00 on Saturday 10th August and you may register between 10.45 and 13.00 in the Coach House on the day, or before with Jean Simnett. 

The cost of entry is £2 which also includes entry to the fete.  An entry number will be allocated on registration and this must be shown on all paintings entered for judging.  Additional paintings will be accepted from each artist for judging at an added cost of £1 each.  All paintings entered must have been completed at the Fete.

Paintings are to be presented at the Coach House before 15.00 for judging by a panel of three judges.  The judge’s decisions are final.

The fete does not provide any materials or equipment and these should be brought along by the artist.   Painting can take place in three designated places in the grounds and around Easton Court, which is the home of Sir Richard and Lady Jennifer Llloyd, and which is off the A456 in Little Hereford (well signposted on the day). The fete starts at 14.00 on Saturday 10th August but painters taking part can start at 11.00 and should finish at 15.00.  Three judges will then judge the entries and prizes will be awarded at 16.00.

Paintings may be offered for sale, and if a sale is made a donation to the fete of 20% of the sale price is suggested. 

Please complete the attached form and either return it to Jean Simnett with your entry fee or bring it along to register at the Coach House.

Good luck.
