Paintout at Riverbend Park - applications to participate due May 7.

Riverbend Park’s fourth Jan and Dan Laytham Paintout, will host up to 35 juried and professional landscape painters working in oils, acrylics, pastels and watercolor, and competing for $2,000 in prizes. Any past participant is automatically eligible, but ALL must preregister and pay a $25 entry fee. Checks should be made payable to “FCPA Riverbend” and sent to Artist in Residence, Riverbend Park, 8700 Potomac Hill St. Great Falls, VA 22066.  The 2009 prospectus is now available on Friends of Riverbend website, www.forb.org.

On Saturday, June 6, 2009, the park will open at 5 a.m. and competing artists will register their blank canvases at the Visitor Center. They then have until 12:30 p.m. to find a motif within walking distance, paint a picture — or two — and return to the Visitor Center for display and judging of their works. First Place wins $1000, Second Place $750, and Third Place $250, with honorable mentions for color and composition. Prizes are sponsored by Realtors Jan and Dan Laytham of Long & Foster's Great Falls office.

The public is invited to visit the park on the day of the paintout, watch the artists at work, and view the complete show of paintings at the Visitor Center directly after the judging. All of the paintings will be available for purchase.

The judge this year is internationally recognized artist and MAPAPA member, Armand Cabrera, who is a past Riverbend "best in show" winner. The show of all paintings will continue at the Visitor Center for two weeks.

Top prize winners from the three previous years were Sara Linda Poly (2006), Armand Cabrera (2007), and Andre Lucero (2008).
