We are looking forward to once again welcoming plein air artists to

“Perch n’ Paint” at Paint Ontario!

Friday September 9th


Sunday September 11th

Registration will open Thursday, September 8th 6-8pm and continue Friday, Saturday and Sunday during regular museum hours.

We had a great experience at our inaugural event last year, and have welcomed some wonderful feedback from participants. We’ve used that feedback to make some changes in 2022:

  • We’re adding a day to the event
  • Registration will begin on the Thursday evening and be open throughout the event to allow for participants to enter on whatever day they arrive
  • Judging and awards will take place on Sunday a little later, allowing for more time to paint on Sunday as well
  • Participants can enter up to three paintings for judging
  • Work will remain on sale at Paint Ontario for the duration of the show in a special gallery
  • We’re still working on our welcome package and hope to add more value and fun – please stay tuned

Details on how to register coming soon. The same excellent prizes will be available:

Our 2 day ‘paintout’ culminated in an open show and sale of artwork produced during this event en plein air.

Stay tuned for future details. Be sure to join our mailing list!
